Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki (1955) ***
13 May 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

For all intents and purposes, this is the last "true" Ma and Pa Kettle film -- because it's the last to feature Percy Kilbride as Pa. As a last hurrah for Kilbride and Marjorie Main together, it's good fun and contains all the gags and charm that made the series so easy to like.

Main is back to her rough and feisty self again as Ma, after acting a bit more refined in lesser recent offerings like AT THE FAIR and ON VACATION. There were a couple more Kettle movies to come (without Kilbride) but this one is a perfect way to end on a high note.

Also features Lori Nelson (REVENGE OF THE CREATURE) as the Kettles' daughter.
