Movie Reviews

Forty Year old Water never tasted so sweet
Bennet Pomerantz | Seabrook, Maryland | 02/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can you say to a forty year old comedy that seem as funny today as it did then. Don't Drink the Water is still a gem of a film. Water's screenplay was written by Woody Allen. It has all the trapping the Allen himself would use in his future screenplays which he would direct. The film is character driven and not action driven, something Allen did in the films in the beginning of his career.

This is the basic plot of the story . The Hollander family's European vacation is interrupted when their plane has to take a forced landing in Bulgaria. The Hollanders (Jackie Gleason in his best role pre-Smokey and the Bandit role and Estelle Parsons) leave the plane to take a few pictures. This results in accusations of The Hollander's and their daughter as spies. On the lam from the Bulgarian soldiers, they take refuge in the American Embassy under the protection of the absent ambassador's hapless son (Ted Bessell).

So, if you want great laughes get this film. I suggest this film over the Don't Drink the Water film with Woody Allen playing the Gleason role and Micheal J Fox playing the Ambassor's son

"Thank you Lion's Gate for acquiring the rights to Avco-Embassy's 'Don't Drink the Water'! I have been waiting for a very long time for this title to come to DVD and this March it finally will! In its original SCOPE widescreen presentation no less!"

"I have liked this movie since the first time that I was it. I was glad that I was able to find it finally. Jackie Gleason and Ted Bessell was great in it."
