I was eager to see "The Kettles on Old MacDonald's Farm" after recently watching the previous movie in the series and highly enjoying it. I'd loved the first eight Kettle flicks as a kid, but it took me several years to finally catch the ninth movie in the series ("The Kettles In The Ozarks"). I was so entertained by it that I just couldn't wait to see part ten and "The Kettles on Old MacDonald's Farm" didn't let me down! There's a different actor playing Pa Kettle, but he's a fine replacement and once again the Kettle clan delivers the goods! There really isn't a bad egg in the entire Kettle series. These movies may not be considered artistic masterpieces, but they are dang good fun!
