Stupid Inventions! One slick con-man!
9 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vinton and Iola both have inventions. Vinton has a lock family home with a mama lock, papa lock, and baby boy lock in a silly lock house. After all, Vinton is a professional and proud locksmith. When he tries to sell his idea, Mama puts him in his place until a potential investor claims that he can make money off of his invention or stupidity or silliness. But that is before Mama gets involved in helping law enforcement out like a local police cop who is old enough to be her grandson gets her involved to stop the latest swindler in Raytown. I surely remember Vinton's invention as one of the funniest if not most ridiculous things in a long time. IOla has a more practical invention where she developed by helping her bed-ridden mother who we never see.
