Fred MacMurray and Jane Wyman in a solid Disney comedy

BON VOYAGE is a solid Disney comedy, with Fred MacMurray and Jane Wyman offering their usual strong performances. However, the movie is long and quite laborous, clocking in at almost two-and-a-half hours. A movie like this could easily be told in 90 minutes.

MacMurray and Wyman play Henry and Katie, a middle-class couple on a whirlwind tour of Europe with their three children (Tommy Kirk, Deborah Walley and Kevin Corcoran). This movie features some beautiful cinematography and breezy musical score, and was perhaps an attempt by Disney to step into a more adult-oriented market (the running time alone makes the film a trial for children). In any event, the film did poorly at the box office and Disney returned to it's usual product.

The DVD is in ghastly fullscreen, but let's not carp. BON VOYAGE is a fine if overlong comedy, with great performances from Deborah Walley and Michael Callan.

Also starring Jessie Royce Landis, Georgette Anys and Ivan Desny. Directed by James Neilson. No extras.
