He was thinking that it was a sequel or redo movie of the "good movie" that was released in 1959 (before my movie watching debut, I might add) that was released with more recent film stars.
No, my friends, don't do it. Do not do it! Do not rent this movie! One of the most STUPID movies that I have ever seen. I'm sorry. Truly. Just no good. I feel bad for the kid that plays the nephew. He is good. This movie should not be on his resume of great films.
Sigh. I, too, am disappointed.
