Drive-in so funny causing amusement (9)


I believe the answer is:


'amusement' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'drive-in so funny' is the wordplay.
'funny' indicates an anagram.
'driveinso' with letters rearranged gives 'DIVERSION'.

'causing' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for diversion that I've seen before include "entertainment" , "Detour" , "Alternative route" , "Amusement -- temporary redirection" .)
