love all the Ma and Pa movies
12 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like the others, these movies are of a caliber that we do not have nowadays. In the mainstream of today's Hollywood we have lost the true concept of humor, as is expressed in the movies of old. Ma and Pa Kettle are right up there with Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, Buster Keaton, etc. Very few of today's comic movie (and comedians) come close to the slapstick and antics of old. This movie was the last one with Percy Kilbride, too bad, for Ma and Pa could of went on for quite some time in my opinion. Overall, I think everyone ought to watch all of their movies, but this one was kinda unique in that it was (officially) their last together for Main and Kilbride. The latter ones just were not quite the same. I do have a question that maybe another person can answer, out of sheer curiosity does anyone know the lady in the swimsuit that walks by the pool on board the ship? Hell she's a knockout and she is not listed in the cast credits.
