Movie Info

At the height of their TV fame, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were contracted by MGM to make two theatrical films. The first of these, The Long, Long Trailer, stars Lucy and Desi as an upwardly mobile couple who decide to buy a trailer so they can live together while his job takes him around the country. Thanks to their naivete in such matters, they end up with a huge, bulky RV that costs five times what they planned. Their "seeing America" trip turns out to be a slapstick disaster, topped by

Strange, surreal film, notable for Minnelli's brilliant use of color and visual style.

Classic Film and Television

One of Minnelli's few broad comedies, more of a collection of anecdotes than a coherent tale, about the wacky misadventures of a middle-class couple (Lucille Ball and Dazi Arnaz) during a long cross-country trek.

doesn't earn a place on my DVD shelf next to my I Love Lucy collection

...not even Minnelli and Berman could do much with a predictably inane script.

The ordinarily graceful Minnelli tries his best to guide this material and he finally gets his momentum in a climactic sequence... But until then, it's a largely unfunny TV sitcom romp.

A disaster for anyone but "I Love Lucy" fans.

Audience Reviews for The Long, Long Trailer

This movie is funny for the most part, but some of the jokes (like the title suggests) go too long, so they're not that funny. The story is also predictable, but it's cool to see a movie with Lucy and Ricky.

As a huge "I Love Lucy" fan, I found that this movie didn't live up to their chemistry in the show. It was funny and a cute movie, but in comparison, the show is hard to beat!
