The DVD Version is really good.
16 October 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I have just finished watching the DVD Version of "Honeymoon In Bali" and must say that it is really good. The DVD Version was released by Passion Productions. Fred MacMurray and Madeleine Carroll, was just wonderful. anyone wishing a little romance in their lives should really enjoy this movie.
