3.0 out of 5 stars A fun reunion movie November 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
In this fun TV movie (made nineteen years after the original sitcom went off the air and starring most of the original cast) Mr. Haney (Pat Buttram) joins forces with a greedy land developer with plans to trick the citizens of Hooterville into selling their farms cheap so as they can bulldoze the town and rebuild it into an industrial city. During all of this, Oliver Douglas (Eddie Albert) and Lisa Douglas (Eva Gabor) are growing tired of Hooterville and move back to New York, only to find that New York doesn't mean the same to them as it once did. It is not their home anymore; Hooterville is their home, and with the help of their Hooterville friends, they return to that beautiful farm town to try and save it.

Most reunion movies are just horrible, like Return of the Beverly Hillbillies, Return to Mayberry and Rescue From Gilligan's Island (just to name a few), but this one was a lot of fun. As with the Green Acres series, the suspension of disbelief stretches so far sometimes you can almost feel it about to snap, but it's still fun and you just have to let certain things go. For example, this movie is set nineteen years after the series, but the Douglas' farm house looks exactly the same, Alf and Ralph are still the Douglas' contractors (believe it or not), we're asked to believe that Arnold is still alive and kicking, and the love story between Daisy Ziffel (the late Fred and Doris Ziffel's niece) and the greedy land developer's son is pretty cheesy. But as I said for the most part the movie is fun and you just have to take things with a grain of salt.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun reunion, but not as zany as the classic series. January 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
Fortunately in 1990 when this 25th Anniversary special was produced, most of the original cast was alive and well. Some cast members look as if only a few years had passed, all have jumped back into their original characters with perfection. What is amazing is that Frank Cady (Sam Drucker) is not only still around, but has aged well, he doesn't look 25 years older!

There are only three things missing from this special.
1) The Ziffels have passed away, but Arnold the Pig still lives on. Their passing is briefly explained by driving by their graves at the beginning. Their farm is now operated by their niece.
2) The Cannonball Train is gone, along with the train tracks next to Sam Drucker's store. No explanation is made of this, we just assume that in 25 years the train (like most) has been shut down.
3) The catchy Vic Mizzy music, which was a trademark of Green Acres, is sourly missing. This is one omission that could have been included. Even with Mizzy gone, his music riffs could have been included.

The story is one of the more solid re-union show stories, but it does go on about 30 minutes too long. The slow down is 30 minutes into the movie when the Douglas's return to New York, this portion of the story should have only lasted 15 minutes but it is padded out. (SPOILER ALERT HERE: When Arnold gets lost in New Your you can just fast-forward to when he is re-united with everyone, that part is just boring padding.)

There is fun humor to be had here, but it is just not the zany humor of the original TV series. The big fun of these re-union shows was to see your favorite characters & stars as they are 'today'. And we were pleased and happy to see how well everyone looked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great finish to "end" the series. April 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
The only downfall of this DVD: NO EXTRAS!! The magic was still there and to see so many of the original cast, just a little bit older, but still as funny to watch. I noticed that Eva didn't get too many kisses on the show, maybe it was because of all that heavy make-up to hide her wrinkles and was that a wig that she had on, just didn't look right? The story line was pretty good, even though, not very original, but it made for good watching and wonderful family fare that is so missing on T.V. except on re-runs. I don't know why I missed this show when it first came out back in 1990 AD, but I am happy that I now have it. Have your children and grand-children over, make some pop-corn and have a great night watching this movie and of course, if you have some of the original Green Acres shows, play them for everyone once again. Enjoy and thank God for giving us Mr. Henning and all of the wonderful things that he has done on radio, the movies and of course, T.V.. +JMJ+

5.0 out of 5 stars Corny Story Line, But It's Green Acres! :) March 17, 2014
By Lisa W.
Verified Purchase
Call me sentimental, but even though the storyline was a tad bit too corny, I just loved seeing the surviving cast together again. For true fans of the show, I think it's an essential to wrap up your Green Acres collection. It's a crime that the studios abandoned the release of Green Acres seasons, after Season Three.

I must admit to NOT liking GA in its initial run--but I became a rabid fan watching it in reruns. I especially like Eva's many malaprops {which strangely make sense}. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Farm Living for my Wife
My Wife has loved this show forever. It was a good closure to the 'corny' sitcom and satisfied her very much. Me? I enjoyed her laughing and loving it. That's all that matters.

A little weak on the humor, which was standard for the TV series anyhow. Sometimes, the weak humor becomes a bit tedious. Read more
