I am happy to see this movie on DVD, there are some missing scenes from when it was shown in theaters in 1974. The DVD cover is great. Excellent picture and audio quality. No Bonus Features. The DVD arrived four days after ordering on Amazon.
One of my fav Disney movies. It was magical back then when going to the movies and seeing all this Disney movies.You could only see them there except for the weekly Magical World of Disney. It was a great time to grow up.
BOB CRANE DID HIS NORMAL WACKY PERFORMANCE. HE HAS A TEENAGE DAUGHTER WHO WAS IN LOVE WITH THE BOY WHO SHE HAD GONE TO SCHOOL WITH AND HAD GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL WITH. HER DAD (BOB CRANE) PULLED SOME STRINGS AND GOT HER INTO HIS OLD ALMA MATER, AND THE BOY FRIEND WAS TO ATTEND CITY COLLEGE. A FUN SATIRE OF EVENTS.
I first watched this movie when I was nine and I loved the love story between the characters. Even the father was a bonehead, he really loves his daughter. So when I saw it 40 years ago, I swore I would walk down the aisle to "These are the best times" by Bobby Goldsboro. I will be doing just that on Oct. 19th! And I shared the movie with my kids and they loved it too!
This movie based in the '70s is a real Disney sleeper of a success..containing many famous cast members.. but more importantly the premise of the story it tells transcends generations to come. The love story of a childhood friendship blossomed, the struggle of a parent trying to hold onto their child who has become an adult and the comedic consequences of that parent trying to manipulate the course. A real gem here is the musical contribution of songwriter Bobby Goldsboro. "These are the Best Times" done by a children's choir at the church wedding of the main characters Wendy and Bart (played by a young Kurt Russell) is a young bride's envy! The song so eloquently breaks through all the stress of the wedding and focuses the audience on the friends and family's importance on the beginning of their new life together! Ahhhh... so romantic, tugs right at the heart and makes you feel warm and fuzzy....
