Audience Reviews for Follow Me, Boys!

Solid, Heartwarming, and an absolute delight, with the main character a gentleman, not an indecent scumbag.

Sentimental Disney film is cute but overlong. (P.S. The Rotten Tomatoes synopsis is for the 1944 musical, which had absolutely nothing to do with this film.)
