When Brad and Caroline Sexton are fighting over the intercoms, the movie Brad turns on is It Happened One Night. However, the first line you hear is "Jumpin' catfish, you drive a guy crazy." The next line you hear is "You can leave. I can get along." These lines are actually out of order according to the film itself. See more »

This is a gentle and amusing comedy. It is the story of a (very) rich couple on the point of divorce forced to flee from the IRS. They end up in Amish country and pretend' to be from another Amish community. The main comedy is from how they try to adapt to the new life, whilst keeping up the pretence of being Amish, and is quite remarkable in portraying the Amish way of life sympathetically. Even the Amish accent is a little more accurate than is normal in a comedy (having lived there myself). It is understandable why it was not a great hit in the Cinema, as it has no big blockbuster special effects, but for the TV it is just what is required when a good laugh is required and the language is suitable for all (except for possibly an Amish viewer).
