Have you ever noticed that Dagwood is a lot like Curious George?
While I love the Blondie and Dagwood films, after a while it was obvious that the titles were completely random. Think about it in this case, "Blondie's Holiday"....there is no holiday, no vacation at all in the film! A few episodes back, there was and this holiday installment inexplicably was called "Blondie's Big Moment"! What was this big moment? I have no idea as the film wasn't about this at all!!
The story finds Blondie putting Dagwood in a VERY awkward position. She and a couple old classmates are planning a reunion and when they think Dagwood made it big in business, Blondie agrees to pay for a reunion dinner that ended up costing about $500...a princely sum back in the day. In fact, Dagwood was earning $75 a week and there was no way that they could afford this. As for Dagwood, remember that he isn't too bright, so he decides to try investing his money on horse racing...and ends up being caught during a police raid!! So how do the Busteads end up extricating themselves from this? After all, Dagwood IS like Curious George...a guy who ends up doing all the wrong things but again and again it all seems to work out anyway!!
This is a modestly enjoyable outing despite Blondie. It has a few laughs and a story very much in line with the spirit of the films. Not great but good despite Blondie's inexplicably actions.
