Good fun, 29 September 2002
Author: RitaRisque from Australia

This is probably one of the better Huggett films, very fast paced and with an interesting storyline. Mr. Huggett with the help of Pet writes a letter to the paper about turning some spare land into a "lido" and the letter actually gets printed. Well, next thing you know, he's running for council! Turns out the land is government owned apart from one block, right in the middle, which belongs to Mrs. Huggett and cousin Diana, and nothing can be done without that, so all their opposition are trying to buy. Diana is all for selling, but Mrs. Huggett won't hear of it.

The best scene has to be where Susan and Peter figure out what's going on and set about fixing it - AND trapping Susan's womanizing boss at the same time. Hilarious!
