Editorial Reviews

When Bundle of Joy premiered in 1956, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher were the cutest young marrieds in Hollywood, the obvious choice to headline the musical remake of one of the great comedies of the '30s, Bachelor Mother. As the Prince Charming of the piece, Fisher proves that as an actor, he is a pretty good crooner. But Reynolds is warmly appealing in the role originated by Ginger Rogers, playing a salesgirl who picks up a foundling, is mistaken for its unwed mother and must keep up the charade - baby and all - to keep her job. Coincidentally, Reynolds discovered she was pregnant before filming began. In true trouper fashion, she was still hoofing up a storm on the soundstage when she was seven months along.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars They just don't make em like this anymore December 22, 2010
Format:DVD
Never saw Eddie Fisher in anything before this....and I gotta say he was wonderful. Debbie, as always, is like a breath of fresh air. The movie was wonderful, entertaining, heartwarming, the whole ball of wax. I just wish they still made movies like this. Today's garbage is all hack em up, sex em up, and swear a blue streak. Probably explains why I prefer to watch these old movies then TRY to find something in the theater worth watching.

Give me Bundle of Joy and Singing in the Rain anytime!

5.0 out of 5 stars A cute film for all the family August 26, 2000
By Kali
Format:VHS Tape
Why is it that Leonard Maltin is so critical about nice films that don't harm anyone in any way? "A Bundle of Joy" might not be a film that stimulates the brain cells but it is a jolly nice film all the same. Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher are great as the mis-matched couple who end up holding the baby, literally! A musical remake of the 1930s film "Batchelor Mother" this little film has a great musical score and a nice little plot that is easy to follow. When Reynolds an out of work salesgirl finds an abandoned baby everyone thinks it is hers, and this is the start of a comedy of errors that will have you laughing and crying in the same breath. Enter Eddie Fisher, Debbie's employer who thinking she has abandoned her child because she has just lost her job, gives her back her job along with the BABY and the laughs really start in earnest! With an adorable little boy to look after, Debbie has to juggle her life and her job, whilst trying to convince everyone that she is not the boy's mother. Add another complication in the form of Fisher's father played magnificently by Adolphe Menjou who thinks he is a grandfather and sets about claiming his grandchild, and you have a funny, gentle comedy that gives you many a chuckle for the duration of the film. So all you folks that just want a nice little film to watch with no violence, no bad language, and no nude scenes, then this film is for you. It's well worth adding to your video collection if you get the chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars delightful comedy classic September 11, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A remake of the 1930's BUNDLE OF JOY, this also bears simularity to film BABY BOOM, made decades later, about a woman who dosen't want a child but ends up raising one anyway. Debbie Reynolds plays a woman who is fired from her job at a department store around Christmas time, who finds a baby boy in a basket at the door of a shelter. She takes the infant in, expecting the workers to take care of it, only to find, much to her dismay, that they think she is the mother.(This film was made before women could simply give an unwanted child up for adoption.) Convincing them it's not hers is made all the more difficult by the fact that, when in one of my favorite scenes, she gives the baby to a woman working at the shelter, saying,"This is NOT my baby!" and the baby starts crying and screaming when he's taken away from Debbie Reynolds, but imedietly calms down after being put back into Reynold's arms. She finally manages to leave the child and walk out before they can give him back to her, thinking she's gotten off the hook, but they soon find out where she worked, and, beliving that she'd abandoned the child as a result of losing her job, they convince her boss to rehire her. Reynolds is delighted at first when she finds out she's got her job back, but not when she finds out the baby comes with it, and that she's going to be his new mother whether she likes it or not. Definetly worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will love this movie! January 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't tell you how happy I was that this movie finally came out on dvd. I have such wonderful memories watching this movie with my mother as a young child. It was one of her favorites.
Each and every character in this movie gives 100% to create such a sweet and amuzing story.
Debbie Reynolds rushes to make sure a baby left on a doorstep is safe and from that moment on this single girl becomes attached.
Eddie Fisher definitely makes the movie even more cute because you can tell he is in love with her on screen and off.
This is a movie I guarantee you will watch over and over just to make you smile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remake of Bachelor Mother January 1, 2011
Format:DVD
Polly Parrish (Debbie Reynolds) works at the Merlin Department store. She gets fired for over-aggressive sales (too many of her sales are returned the next day). So on her last day on the job she is out on her lunch break looking for another situation. That is when she witnesses a baby being left on the steps of an orphanage. Afraid it will fall off, she goes to the rescue and is discovered "leaving her baby"--so they think. After she has answered a few questions from the orphanage staff she realizes what they are thinking and scurries out. But they had learned her name and where she works. They track her down and discover from her employer that she had been fired that day. They deduce that she was concerned that she would no longer be able to care for her baby and that is why she "abandon" him. They convince young Mr. Merlin (the boss's son, played by Eddie Fisher) to give her back her job, and in the process he becomes involved with the "family," and his father, John B. Merlin, Sr., becomes convinced that he is a grandfather. Things get pretty crazy as Polly believes that Mr. Merlin, Sr. is going to have her baby taken from her.

Though fun in its own way, this lacks the chemistry and wit of the original with David Niven and Ginger Rogers (in spite of the fact that Fisher and Reynolds were husband and wife, and parents of Carrie Fisher). Imdb trivia indicates that this was Fisher's acting debut and that he didn't care for this movie.

Unlike the original, this is a musical. Though the leads are both excellent musical talents, I prefer this story without the tunes. Even though much of the dialogue is the same from one movie to the other, it just doesn't seem to have the same spark in this version.
