Four Stars Out of Five
20 October 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In an effort not to alienate his wife's wealthy aunt, newly-wed Charley must masquerade as a boarder in his own home while his wife pretends to be married to an old beau.

Although not one of Chase's best comedies, there is no shortage of laughs in this outing for Charley. His long-suffering reaction to the frequently offered artichokes is a corker, and the matter-of-fact way in which he and his wife's old beau exchange places is also very funny. This likely won't win any new fans for Charley, but will please his current ones.

See if you can spot Charley's real life daughter, Polly in the cast -- I couldn't find anyone with enough family resemblance to be sure it was her. It does raise the question of whether she approved of Charley's stage name: the real family name was Parrott, which Charley used to direct. But how comfortable could she have been as Polly Parrott?
