3.0 out of 5 stars the Short version of the Long Long Trailer, September 8, 2009
This review is from: The Long, Long Trailer (DVD)
I looked forward to seeing this classic because we had recently purchased an RV and I remembered how hilarious the T.V. movie had seemed when I saw it as a child. Several of the key elements for humor where there...the rock collection, running over the flower beds, etc. But I recalled other parts of the movie that were not on this DVD.
There was alot more character and story development in the original version shown on T.V. I remember Spagehtti going all over the place...not in this DVD; and when Lucy (Tacey) was in the trailer with a sprained ankle, there was more in the sequence than shown (Marjorie Maine had a lot more speaking parts). Overall, it was fun seeing the highlights again, but I wish the entire movie had been shown. I'm wondering why they deleted some of it.

I want to give this to someone as a gift. Do you think if I purchased the VHS version done in 1990 it would be more like the one you (and they) saw as a child vs. the DVD that came out in 2006?

I too saw this as a young teenager and thought it was hilarious but I guess I forgot some of the parts you mentioned. Why can't they put the whole movie on a DVD. I can understand why they may have shortened a VHS format. I had already purchased this DVD version so let me know if they ever come out with the whole movie again.

IMDb states original movie was 102 minutes long. Wish I could find that version!
