BON VOYAGE CHARLIE BROWN (AND DON’T COME BACK) (Theatrical Release USA 1980)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!!)—cute and child friendly—gives a nostalgic trip for adults and provides nicely done, quiet entertainment for children. The film is simple, heartful, and meaningful. It shows, in a very nice way, how young children may think and interact with each other. This is classic B grade film-ware that moves into a 4.3/5.0 story for its simplicity and easy viewing. Not too loud, brash, overly complicated, or lacking in heart, this film easily earns a place in the family home video collection due to its engaging presentation and gentle reminder of the more important things in life.

Storyline

Charlie Brown is chosen to be a French foreign exchange student.
