People doing things they really shouldn't!!
28 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

You take one male and one female either related or by marriage but one has to be a generation older than the other. So they have two couples doing stupid things like dancing and they bring another two couples in to do stupid things. They get judged and two couples leave and the last two couples do a sketch and one couple win. The winning couple then go on to memorise toys and appliances and what they remember they take home.
