The Reviews for Don't Drink the Water (1969) 720p


Good Fun And Laughs!!Reviewed byrandalljoeVote: 8/10

Gleason shines in this cold-war comedy.Gleason and his family are mistaken for spys in a communist style country and chased into an American embassy.The Laughs are often and the cast excels,especially Gleason,"Krojack" and "Father Drobney".The movie is hardly a masterpiece but if your in the right frame of mind its Hilarious!

It's much better than the later remake with Woody Allen which was harsh,cynical and forced.And produced much less laughs also.

Its just Good Clean Fun!

terribly annoying familyReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 2/10

Caterer Walter (Jackie Gleason) and wife Marion Hollander (Estelle Parsons) are on their European vacation with their teenage daughter Susan. Their plane is hijacked and forced to land in Vulgaria. The family decides to sightsee behind the Iron Curtains. The local authorities chase the family into a US Embassy limo. Axel Magee is the incompetent son of an ambitious politician and the acting ambassador. He takes the family back to the American Embassy. Commissar Krojack (Michael Constantine) intends to get the supposed spies.

This family is the worst example of the ugly Americans. It was probably funnier with an audience who grew up with Jackie Gleason. It would be better if Marion isn't a complete idiot. Two idiots don't always make for a funny couple. One smart one would be a great foil for the other. I just found everybody terribly stupid and insufferably annoying. I really hate this family and by extension, I hate this movie.

first film version - This is Jackie Gleason versionReviewed byksf-2Vote: 7/10

Comedic story of Americans traveling in foreign countries, and the mis-adventures they run into along the way. Unlike most other writers here, I like the 1969 Jackie Gleason version of Don't Drink the Water MUCH better than the later one starring Woody Allen, who WROTE the thing originally. In the original, the irony is that Jackie Gleason is a big and blustery loudmouth ( a real stretch for him) , but up until the end, not much gets accomplished, in spite of all his yelling and storming around. Also stars Estelle Parsons (Bonnie and Clyde) and Ted Bessell (probably best known as the hen-pecked boyfriend on That Girl). When the diplomat leaves the country, his son Axel (Bessel) fills in, and things take turn after turn for the worse. The debate to remake movies or Not to remake movies continues. Directed by Howard Morris, who had directed both live action and animated comedies for years.
