Ol Al trying to build a refuge away from his wife
4 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well in short, Al tries building an escape from his wife and soon to be new born. Al finds his Dad's hammer and despite his Peggy and Marcy not believing he could do it, starts building his own room to be away from Peg. Meanwhile Bud has a new identity. Grand Master B starts a year long running gag that has his family making mistakes on his new nickname. "bassmaster B" "Grampa B" lines likes that such as. Well Al is now done with his new room. How he got all that money to build an addition is beyond me however its looks fabulous. Basking in the glow of his new room he kicks the family out and sits down. Soon after, Jefferson knocks and comes in with his suitcases. Al says O.K. for just one night and not to tell anyone. Well sure enough, the next scene has all of Al's friends there ruining the place. Then Marcy had her friends there while Al and his buddies are cowering in the corner. Al has had enough when the girls decide that their new safe zone is Als new bathroom. Al precedes to ruin the room by bashing it. Chaos ensues. Last scene has Bud kissing a girl and the hammer falls upon the self proclaimed tough guy's head. He yells out for Mommy and a picture of Al's glowing hammer shows while the credits roll. I rated this a 9 simply because it was pretty funny. Im a MWC freak. Watching around three a day or night. I like this one because of the running gag about Buds name. Fact: Bud (David Faustino) Owned a night club hot spot on Hollywood when he was 17. This is how the whole rapper Grandmaster B thing started. It was intended to make light of Bud's rapping desires in real life.
