EXCELLENT Family Movie, Funny, Funny, Funny {^j^}
16 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can not remember when the last time is I saw such a truly funny, funny movie. There are NO swear words, nudity (or close!), crude humor, etc. It is a PURELY FUNNY MOVIE. I saw this on one of the Direct Satilite TV Movie Channels and have not been able to find it anywhere since. Unlike most of the black actors/actresses of her time, Ma Mabley can pull off gut-wrenching laughter from you, without having to resort to dirty language. If only Richard Prior, Redd Foxx, Bill Cosby (yes, even HE "had" to use mild swear words to try to get a laugh, especially in his beginning), Martin Lawrence, etc. etc. would have taken a 'lesson from Ma', they too might have been this funny! I would give my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION to this movie. It should be RE-RELEASED and in everyone's collection!! Don Ginter Northville NY 12134-0627 USA
