Strained slapstick comedy with a star-studded cast.

The highlight is Lamour singing a spoof about her on-screen sarong persona. For some fetishists, seeing Meredith's shaven bare chest might supply another.

Audience Reviews for On Our Merry Way

How'd they get so many top rank stars to appear in this meager offering? Not dreadful but very minor. Jimmy & Henry's segment is the best plus there's a chance to see MacMurray & Demerest team up years before My Three Sons.

A drama anthology film if that interests you, I found it annoying, they should have stuck with the first story.

Started off kind of slow, but then began to build up steam after the introduction of Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewarts characters.
