Editorial Reviews

Comic adventure awaits the Willard family when Harry (Fred MacMurray) packs up the wife and kids and sets sail on a long-awaited "dream" vacation to romantic France. However, their trip includes some unforeseen adventures: his wife Katie (Jane Wyman) is pursued by a Hungarian admirer; his daughter Amy (Deborah Walley) meets a brash young playboy; and Harry himself gets hopelessly lost on a tour of the Paris sewer system! Join the Willards for a hilarious, whirlwind trip they'll never forget!|One of Walt Disney's favorite trips was for this film because it took him to Paris, where he got to visit places he'd been when he served as an ambulance driver at the end of World War I.|"Never again!" Walt Disney declared after being criticized for a scene in which an attractive Parisian girl flirts with Fred MacMurray at a sidewalk cafe.|The film was nominated for two Academy Awards- for Best Costume Design and Best Sound.

I have been familiar with this film since I worked for Disney in 16mm film distribution in the 1970s. I started at Disney after just coming back from Europe, so the French settings were nice to revisit.
I am very familiar with the various negatives of this film. I agree with several reviewers that a DVD should contain the best possible picture and sound element. It should also present the film in its original, projected aspect ratio, which for BON VOYAGE was 1:85.1 (Academy 'flat') which gives the film a slight, rectangular image. However, full frame, 4 by 3 transfers of 1:85x1 pictures are not necessarily all that bad. You loose a little picture on the sides, but not really that much. Some work could have been done on color correcting, although the DVD's 'look' exactly matches the projected film.
I also agree that a few 'extras' would have been nice, even just the theatrical trailer. Walt Disney filmed 'everything' to do with his studio's product, so there must be a good amount of 'extras' for BON VOYAGE in the Disney film vaults. Why aren't they included?
Anyway, it's still nice to have this some-what overlong film back on the market. I grabbed a copy at BestBuy as soon as I spotted it. I have always felt that it was about 20 minutes too long, and that it incorporated two scenes (Fred McMurray and the French prostitute in Paris, and the attempted extortion of son Elliot on the Riviera) that should not have been in the script. The film might have done better with its intended audience. Tommy Kirk's performance as Elliot, however, is a treasure; he was a very polished actor, and gave wonderful comic relief it wasn't 'mugging' but was built solely out of his character.

The real star of this movie was the old ocean liner SS UNITED STATES. Parts of the film were shot aboard this great ship [...] This is another Disney family film in the tradition of the Swiss Family Robinson & That Darn Cat. A bit dated for modern kiddies but this film was Disney's most UNDER-RATED film.

I actually enjoyed this film, although I think I was the only one in our group who did. Our house guest, who is an old movie buff, gave up, and did not sit in through to the end. My wife tolerated it, and said it was ok. Sure, it was a silly comedy, but I enjoyed the performances of the Disney stars, including Fred McMurrey, Tommy Kirk, and Kevin Corcorrin. I also love cruise ships, and the early part of the film, which takes place on a cruise ship, was most familiar and enjoyable. If you just want to spend an evening watching the old familiar Disney Troupe going through their paces, this will be a fun film for you.

Oh, Disney! Disney! Why do you stab me in the heart so often?
This company seems to think that avoiding black little bars at the top and bottom of 4:3 television screens makes families happy and content. Why not consider us grownups instead, who are very saddened indeed to watch movies like this with the sides cut off?
Besides, what child or teenager today would tolerate viewing this movie anyhow, cropped or in letterbox format? This is definitely a film for people BORN in the fifties and sixties. Yes, it's overlong! Yes, it's corny a lot of the time! Yes, it's often dull and even boring! And yes, I still enjoy it for all its faults! But I would be ten times happier if Disney had given me this film on DVD in the correct aspect ratio of 1.78:1 - with anamorphic enhancement, of course! WHEN WILL THEY LEARN?

"Let's all stay together..................."

Let's all take a disorganized family cruise and don't stay together. That's the premise of this Oscar nominated film (Costume Design & Sound). A belated honeymoon of sorts for Fred MacMurray and Jane Wyman. One in which they drag the whole family along (Deborah Walley, Tommy Kirk, and Kevin Corcoran). This proves to be an ill-fated gesture on their part as the family barely bands together long enough to say hello or ask for their allowance before taking off. Deborah Walley instantly becomes involved with a playboy (Michael Callan). Tommy Kirk exchanges his teen angst to become a lothario stalking girls. Kevin Corcoran only hangs around when the plot demands; otherwise he's nowhere to be seen. Jane Wyman gets manhandled by a Hungarian masher. Poor Fred gets angry, gets drunk, wrecks a casino, disapproves of practically everything ("He admits he went to Yale!"), and gets lost in the Paris sewers. But, the humor is good natured. The family rallies at the end. All in all, since I like a little plot with my travelogues, this wasn't a bad movie.
As far as comic misadventures go, it's a voyage I wouldn't mind taking/watching again. But not anytime soon.

Watched this movie for the first time in 2014. It was made in the early 1960's by Disney with some then famous Disney stars.
However, this is not your typical, really fun Disney movie. It does have its funny moments from time to time, but is mostly a serious movie about relationships, especially between the family's late-teen daughter and a playboy type young man in his 20s, that takes place on a cruise from New York to France, then in France itself.

It's ok to watch once, but it's not one of those movies that I would like to watch over and over again.
