This movie was during the annual hiatus from Donny and Marie's popular variety show largely as a vehicle with the hope that it would inspire a series of harmless, fun-in-the-sun movies that had worked for Frankie and Annette. Alas, the movie was a commercial failure so all future plans were cancelled.

The scene at the beginning where they are calling their mom to let her know they are about to board the plane for Hawaii was actually filmed at the Honolulu airport.
When Donny and Marie are doing the TV spot, their real life father is sitting on the stage playing a talk show guest. He is the white haired man sitting next to the desk.
Donny's fiancée makes an appearance at the very end when Donny is heartbroken and about to board the plane to leave. She plays the new girl who comes up and asks for his autograph. In real life they have now been married more than 30 years.
