Nicky and Tacy are going to be married. Nicky wants to save up money for a house, but Tacy dreams of starting off with their own home on wheels--a trailer. After the two are hitched, they hitch up their trailer and begin their honeymoon. The humor comes from several disastrous adventures the couple has while traveling including Tacy's awkward attempt to cook dinner in a moving trailer, and a cliffhanging ride through the mountains that nearly destroys their marriage.

When Nicky and Tacy are at the service station after being pulled out of the mud there is a Phillip Morris sign on the front of the station. Phillip Morris was the sponsor of "I Love Lucy" at the time. See more »
In the scene where Nicky and Tacy are having their dinner in their trailer in the rain, Tacy brings a bottle of Chianti (a dark red wine) to the table. You can clearly see the coloring through the bottle. When she pours the wine it has changed both in the bottle, and in the glasses to a white wine. See more »
Newlyweds (Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz) buy large travel trailer to drive around the country on their honeymoon. As you might expect -- any and every thing that can go wrong, does. Hilarious slapstick comedy from Vincente Minnelli with Lucy and Desi, at the height of their TV show fame, in rich Anscocolor. It's a movie I've long loved. If you're an I Love Lucy fan you'll get a kick out of this. It's a lot like the brand of humor you see on that show. The thing I like the most about the movie, besides being very funny, is that it looks so good. It was shot both on the great MGM backlot and on location in several beautiful places in California. The color is lovely, too. Also, I'm no trailer buff but I loved all the stuff with the trailers and the cars. I'm a sucker for minutiae in older films and this one is full of odds & ends people like me can savor. It's a very simple but funny comedy with lots of extras for nostalgists and fans of classic Hollywood.
