Bland But Watchable
14 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

A bland but watchable entry in the Blondie series, "Blondie's Big Deal" has most of the series' usual features, with a story that includes a couple of interesting ideas.

Dagwood has come up with a brilliant invention, a new kind of paint that renders objects completely fireproof. But he is having trouble convincing his boss that it actually works, and at the same time a rival company is trying to steal his invention. Naturally, Dagwood quickly finds himself in a complicated mess, and Blondie has to try to bail him out. Thus begins a series of entanglements.

After a pretty good start, the plot soon becomes fairly routine, and almost completely predictable. But there are a couple of good scenes, and it is mildly entertaining to see how everything comes out.
