Editorial Reviews

Follow the fun, follow the fleet, Follow the Boys with four seagulls - Navy wives and sweethearts who careen around the French and Italian Riviera in a beat-up jalopy, trying to keep up with their seagoing menfolk. After America's teens made Where the Boys Are a breakthrough hit, two of that comedy's stars, Connie Francis and Paula Prentiss, reunited for this follow-up that, like its predecessor, relies on Francis' mighty pipes for song and on romantic mix-ups and mismatches for laughs. The girls (Janis Paige and Dany Robin round out the quartet) are glamorous, but even they can't out-wow the scenery: Nice, Cannes, Santa Margherita Ligure and a white-sand-fringed, brilliantly blue Mediterranean.

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Connie is the Star, but Has Little Screen Time September 5, 2011
MGM in an attempt to cash in on the wildly successful "Where The Boys Are" three years later put Connie in this overly subplotted movie, losing Francis along the way. She was the bankable star in the aforementioned debut movie, as she is here, but isn't given much better treatment. In Where The Boys Are she sang the smash title and one other number, here she sings the hit title and 2 other songs. The co-stars take center stage in a silly love triangle, while Janis Paige as the wife of a Commander, only wishes for a stable home life and perhaps some children. Paige is the real pro in this movie. Again, the stars and especially Connie are saddled with a rather weak script. She was able to overcome this in her next movie where is was firmly showcased, but this does not happen in "Follow The Boys". The viewer will however, notice her professionalism when she is singing in front a large crowd at a wine festival in Italy ("Tonight's My Night") which she does with remarkable ease, having sang before huge crowds on stage.

There are several scenes in the movie where she appears heavier. At the time the studio bosses put her on illegal diet drugs (she stayed hooked for 20 years and walked away from them cold turkey, remarkably without side-effects).

There is not much of a plot to go into except women called "Sea Gals" following the ships around the world where their mates or boyfriends are stationed. It is through this thin premise, that the writers added far too many inane subplots.

Outside of the title song, I wasn't very impressed with this movie. It does however have it's comic moments, all supplied by Francis.

If you're a fan you'll want this movie made on demand. It is remastered with a great transfer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice September 11, 2011
Well as is stated in another review it is nice to have this Francis movie for those of us who are true fans. Her musical scenes are by far the best, Waiting For Billy is a very nice one with great shots of Connie. The best thing about this movie is the transfer, they (WB) did a great job. THe color and clearity are top notch. I enjoyed it after all these years. If you are a Connie fan so will you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! February 22, 2014
Verified Purchase
This was a must have for anyone who grew up in Santa Monica during the 60's and owned your own van. Those were the days you could actually camp out and sleep on the beach without a care in the world. Fun times! This CD brought back the good old memories of my youth; blonde, sun-streaked hair and a dark tan.

I love Connie Francis' singing! And her movies take me back to a more gentle time of my youth. Fun, silliness, and great music - what more can ask of an evening's entertainment after a long day dealing with reality!

A fun movie to watch on an afternoon with nothing to do. Connie Francis was great as was Delores Hart and the whoe cast. It was fun reliving days gone by.
