Take one wife, calm and level headed. Add a pinch of sarcasm. Fold in one husband, suitably dense. Stir until fully blended. Sprinkle with wisecracking children, a goofy sidekick, a volcanic boss, and an annoying brother-in-law. Cook until half baked.
Phil Harris, the swaggering, cocky cornball, is in top form. Alice Faye delights as the glamorous yet grounded retired movie star. Elliott Lewis lives it up as Frankie Remley, Phil's best friend and provocateur, along with costars Walter Tetley, Robert North, Gale Gordon, Jeanine Roos, and Ann Whitfield and guest Sheldon Leonard.
