Movie Reviews

Better than nothing, but....
Kenneth Lim | Beijing, China | 11/11/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Must admit to being an Osmond since the early 70s, and as I am now living in China, I jumped at any chance to Donny and Marie perform. After a 30 year wait, what one gets is hardly a best of collection, but 2 sample discs of 4 incomplete Donny and Marie shows. I realise that Donny experienced royalty and cost issues when he tried to create a compilation disc set. This compromise leaves fans wondering if the full collection of 72 episodes will ever be released on dvd. All this aside, am glad to have a high quality reproduction on DVD, as the sound and the images are awesome!"
A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT TO DONNY & MARIE FANS!

"Growing up as a kid in the 1970s, my siblings and I always looked forward to Sunday nights when we would gather in front of our TV set and watch our favorite foreign shows on Channel 7 one after the other. It started with The Muppet Show at 6pm, Donny and Marie, Mork and Mindy, Charlie's Angels and, finally, Three's Company.
Having complete sets of Three's Company and Charlie's Angels, it was, therefore, such a joy to finally learn that Donny and Marie would finally be released on DVD. Inspite of the fact that this DVD set was advertised as "Volume 1" I still bought the DVD because, for me, owning this set was still better than none. Viewing the 4 select episodes with my mom last weekend (like we did 30 years ago) was a nostalgic event. We enjoyed seeing Donny and Marie all over again at their prime singing, acting and dancing their hearts out. I also still clearly recall their wonderful performance of "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" which was thankfully included in Episode 2 of this set so seeing this performance all over again was pure joy. After viewing the 4 episodes on 2 discs, (I got this DVD together with Season 6 of Golden Girls), I wanted more! I felt really disappointed that for 4 episodes, I had to pay $20.00+ which, when compared to the $27.99 cost of the Golden Girls Season 6 containing 21 episodes, was really a rip-off. It would have been such a great buy if this set was called "Donny and Marie: The Complete First Season" containing ALL episodes. When will we see that day? I am sure the manufacturers of this set had their reasons for releasing such an incomplete set but to fans like us, there is just no excuse for depriving us of the joy in seeing the complete first season and the next 3 seasons! I appeal to the people behind this set to please release the complete 4 seasons because I assure you of our complete support in purchasing the sets. The Donny and Marie Show deserves to be seen again and again by our generation and future generations as well because this show was simply brilliant and is a shining example of what great entertainment is all about. I would rate this 5-stars if it was the complete first season but due to incompleteness, I rate it only 3-stars."
Awesome!

"Donny and Marie at their best! When Marie was only 16 and Donny 18, the talented brother and sister duo perform their famous, "I'm a little bit country, I'm a little bit rock and roll" concerts amd slapstick comedy skits. The numerous guest stars that appeared throughout the years (Bob Hope, Carl Reiner, Ruth Buzzi, Paul Lynde and Charo to name a few) make this DVD a treat to watch for all of those wanting a bit of nostalgia from the '70's. The Osmond Brothers and the Ice Vanities also make their appearances and add to the fun of this weekly variety show. Take a trip back in time and enjoy this DVD for the whole family. A Bonus Photo Gallery is included.But please, next time Donny-the whole season's shows and not the heavily edited ones?"
Donny and Marie>>>Simply The Best!!!!!!!!

"

Donny and Marie Osmond became the youngest brother and sister duo to have a television show.

Every week we laughed and we were entertained by the comedy and music of Donny and Marie and often the Osmond family.

Every week we listened to some country songs and to some good old rock and roll!!!

Every week we were blessed by words written by Alan Osmond and sung by Donny and Marie.........
"May tomorrow be a perfect day.........."

Get this DVD and travel down memory lane!
