Goofs

There are only three Harper children shown in this movie: Eunice, Philip, and Ellen. Yet, in previous "Family" sketches (the basis of this movie)and in the series "Mama's Family", there are two other sons, Vinton (played by Ken Berry, who plays Philip in this movie)and Larry (played by Alan Alda). Brother Philip was played by Roddy McDowall in at least two of the original "Family" sketches. See more »

Eunice, the consummate loser. Period.
30 December 2005 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

This 1981 teleplay is the absolute end-all for the Eunice character portrayed by Carol Burnett for several years during her reign as television's finest comedian, and with her own variety show to boot... I recall Burnett once saying in an interview that she was glad to put an end to the Eunice character with this special. It was certainly the last word for Eunice, but not for the rest of the cast, who continued the saga of "Mama's Family". The bittersweet ending of "Eunice" is a great finale for the title character and her family story. With the excellent supporting cast, it created one of the all time best TV "specials". Vicki Lawrence, Ken Berry, Harvey Korman and Betty White kept this simple minded family alive for years afterward, and with great success. This should be on DVD for all generations to appreciate. It's television at its best!
