"This is such a colorful, whimsical video that it shows the beginning of the struggles & climbs and the raw talent & determination both Sonny & Cher had early on. It has various skits meshed into a movie that highlights both singing and Cher solo too, shows personalities & love toward eachother, clothing styles outasite,segments actually shot in their first home amid the fanciful 60's, at a time when producers really tried to do things their way.Segments include Sonny as bumbling sheriff, spy & Tarzan-type, carousel scene & show S & C as independent innovates, who vow to continue to value love over any dumb movie."
Sonny and Cher's kooky innocence captures America's heart

"While "Good Times", Sonny and Cher's only movie together will hardly go down as a classic film, the couple's endearing relationship and genuine love for eachother shines through in this kooky comedy. Sonny's penchant for slapstick is especially evident, while Cher plays herself to perfection. There really is no plot to this film, which ironically, is part if its charm. In fact, the entire movie is Sonny's struggle to come up with a plot for a movie he is contracted to make with Cher. His imagination takes him away more than once in a series of comic sketches from the old old west to Walter Mitty. Several scenes in the movie were actually filmed in Sonny and Cher's own house due to budget restraints. Their interaction as a couple is totally genuine, much of it actually ad libbed. Definitely a must see for Sonny and Cher fans."
"This is Where it all Began!!!

"My Mom took to the drive-in theater when I was 13 years old to see this movie. I loved it of course, being a fan of Sonny & Cher since the "Caesar & Cleo" year before! This film gives us a glimpse into the beginnings of Sonny & Cher/Cher, who go on to become nearly legendary in the entertainment world. It was the first time anyone who loved S & C's music to "see" them, doing more than singing, where for the most part Cher just stood there, wonderful of course, but certainly not the proven superstar she has become. Who would think 40 years could go by so fast. The film is a delight for me to watch today. It is simply a charming little film, done with all the production their budget would allow! Actually, the film itself, basically ignored when released, is put together quite well. Director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) obviously put his heart and soul in the making of this little movie, starring, of all people, Sonny & Cher. Many many "Good Times" were to follow......"
AMERICA'S FAVORITE COUPLE

"This movie like everything else of Sonny & Cher was made before it's time. When the film first came out it did not do good but some 40 years later so many of Sonny & Cher fans are purchasing this film even with it's not so good reviews. I loved the scenary in the beginning of the film with all of it's beauty. Great to see Sonny & Cher play themselves. They were so young and so in love. You can feel their love by watching the movie. It has it's corney scenes when Sonny is day dreaming but but it also has cute scenes of them changing into different costumes. I loved the singing, it brought back so many memories of the dynamic duo. My favorite part was the ending where they show how much they love each other and Sonny risks everything to make Cher happy and to stick by their principals. In the end love is all that matters. Sonny & Cher was America's favorite couple and there will never be any other couple that can compare or take their place. If you are a Sonny & Cher fan you have to get this DVD. It is a treasure. So young and so in love, this is the beginning of the Sonny & Cher craze. I agree with the previous person, the movie needed a commentary of either Cher or the late and very missed Sonny Bono."
