Dying to see this again...
14 October 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

It's been years since I last saw this movie on television. It never seems to air anymore, as though it has simply been forgotten about. When they used to show it on TV, I saw it several times and loved it just as much each time. I didn't have a VCR back then, otherwise I would have gladly taped it. Even a lousy VHS recording would be better than nothing and this movie doesn't seem to be available for purchase or rent in any format. Carol Burnett and Charles Grodin were an excellent combination for the city-slicker parents going suburban. And David Hollander, their son, was just the cutest little boy. It was a pleasant and humorous movie that left a lasting impression on me and I'm dying to see it again. When, oh when, is this going to be released on DVD??? Isn't it about time???
