Movies on a Budget
26 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Here is yet another entry in Fox's "Jones Family" series, which ran from 1936 through 1940. In this one, the newlyweds are fighting over money issues and fast-talking semi-con man 'Uncle Charlie', played by Alan Dinehart is in town making trouble. As usual for a Fox B, the camera work by Edward Snyder -- who, after the series ended, went into Fox's special effects department -- is top notch, but the script is workaday and the direction by Herbert Leeds is workaday at best. The line readings seem forced. Spring Byington is, of course, perfect in her role as as the Jones Family mother, but otherwise this one is pretty much of a mechanical yawn.
