During the water-ski scene, the Bruno Kirby character is filming Bob Crane's character. When they are watching the film in a later scene, it is simply the scene from the movie, complete with edits and slow motion effects instead of what the character would really have filmed. See more »

I am giving this Disney film a ten. I've seen this film at least three times before. I saw it during it's original release almost forty years ago, then again in 1978 when it was aired on network TV, and then another time a few years later. I recently saw it again after at least 25 years and I remember how much my family laughed their heads off as Bob Crane screamed his head off while water skiing. I am much older now, a dad myself and a responsible adult just like the parents in the film. The gang Wendy hangs out with -- all from the beginning of her childhood -- are all good kids despite the comments a lot of the adults make. My perspective on the film has changed since I first saw it as a child. That's why it now receives a "ten" from me. It was one of the best movies I've got engrossed in the past year and I didn't want it to end.
The wedding at the end of the film is still the most beautiful wedding ceremony ever filmed in a movie. It's easy to brush off a Disney film like this. I do it often with so many of the others that came out during my time. But this movie has a lot going on in it including the main song "These Are The Best Times."
I don't know if this has been remade yet but it could be remade again. Maybe they could make a new version with Kurt Russell in the father role looking after let's say his granddaughter. What a great starring vehicle for Kurt and Goldie.
This is definitely a new favorite for me.
