A Mediocre Comedy/Romance Film
- Retro Queenie
If you're looking for a mediocre comedy/romance film, then this is the one to watch. It doesn't have the best writing I've seen in this genre. The humor is a bit dry in this one. However, the relationship between Ian McShane and Suzanne Pleshette is enjoyable to watch. And the movie doesn't end with a cliche like a lot of romance films I have watched. The concept of this movie is interesting, but it could of have had better writing. Nevertheless, a film to check out if you never seen it before, especially if you're interested in Ian McShane's earlier work.

Mediocre movie that comes alive whenever Suzanne Pleshette is on screen and crawls to its various holes to die when she's not. Especially lame are the sophomoric attempts at humor (i.e. the pervy tourist taking pictures of boobs and butts, the compulsive thief tourist, the idiotic tourist couple who are separated etc etc) that are, at best, mid level sitcom in quality. And those two Donovan songs have to be the dullest that poignant baladeer has ever penned or sung. Give it a C. P.S. How come no Paris? Budget problems? Union problems? Sure could have used some of the City Of Light 'stead of blah Holland/Belgium.
- Jim Smith
Two great features. At heart a travelogue and a good one with lots of varied scenery from Europe. And, it has Suzanne Pleshette a woman who charms me by merely smiling. She is something else! Added features are very brief guest appearances by several stars. Good all around cast and presentation. Enjoy!
Very Good movie
- The Cid
Much better than it would appear to be. Pleshette and McShain are excellent in the movie and the script is very good. Pleshette has always been overlooked and McShain previews his excellent talents to come. While one of the many romantic comedies of the period, it is better than most because of the actors and the screenplay. If it were in black and white and made in the 40's or 50's, it would probably be shown every month.
If it's Tuesday this must be Belgium
A perfectly light hearted movie, full of fun and hilarious escapades endured by many first time tourists of Europe. This movie is one of the most credible travel adventures overseas even in this day. Please TCM show this movie soon.Thank youPete
I second that Mary
Now that Suzanne Pleshette has sadly left us, this movie must come out on DVD. So may crappy movies made in the past 20 years are on DVD, how hard is it to get this gem of a comedy on DVD. So many wonderful stars of the 60's made up the ensemble cast, and I think fans of Ian McShane in "Deadwood" would love to see a younger, more happy go-lucky version of the actor. Please someone make this title avaiable. It was definitely one of the better comedies of the 60's!
Cultural Understanding of The 60s Could be Lost.
- Mary Miller
It was an important movie of its generation (1969) because of the cast, the color of Europe at that time and the understanding of tourism industry. It was a farce that rivals "The Russians are Coming..." and while there is a remake that was done in 198-, it does not reflect the time of the generation of the 60's, nor the understanding between Europe and America. (Not to mention the tension of the Vietnam war).I'd admit that the comedy is close to Jimmy Stewart and Sandra Dee's Movie (forgot the title), yet I would argue that they were not the same. This movie is no longer being released in any format, nor available in libraries. I feel that as an Anthorpologist, this is a loss to our culture and society towards understanding the era of 60's.
