Storyline

For her birthday Ritchie Connors gives his wife Nora a coat from the store where he works. His workday gloom is made even worse when their friend from next-door shows up that evening in a mink. To try and make things right Nora goes out and buys four live mink to raise. But the attempt at grow-your-own-coat is none too popular with husband or neighbours.

Cute, clean, good fun
24 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great classic movie! Very funny antics, very real characters, just a great overall movie.

The best friend is a hoot, and her husband is also very amusing. The change that comes over the kids in the countryside is amazing, but still very believable.

The best character, however, has to be Mrs. Moxie, the lady with the minks. She is hilarious (Ma Kettle)! She provides a great deal of humor with her style of dress and deportment.

Their beautiful house in the country is worth seeing. The transformation that it goes through with their hard work and determination is astounding.

All in all, a very fine movie if you like a wholesome, nice, funny movie for the whole family to watch.
