Storyline

When a dozen kittens are delivered to the Williamses, Danny realizes that, yet again, he's the victim of one of Charley Halper's practical jokes. Danny plots his revenge when he suggests to Charley that they engage Muriel Schultz, the Williamses chubby, temporary maid, suggesting to Charley that's she's beautiful and hugely talented. Muriel is a performer and takes her Copa debut very seriously and Danny soon realizes that she will be hurt by all of this and Danny and Kathy figure a way out of all of this. The only solution is to allow her to perform as scheduled and, ultimately, the joke is on everybody when she turns out to be a terrific singer and a huge success. Written by gaelicguy

One of the best practical jokes movie!
12 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I like practical jokes. Practical jokes are also called pranks, and I've watched a lot of pranks at WWW.iPRANK.TV. Prank on your friend actually make a closer relationship between you and them, but don't go too much or it'll be a disaster.

After Danny realizes that, yet again, he's the victim of one of Charley Halper's practical jokes. Danny plots his revenge when he suggests to Charley that they engage Muriel Schultz, the Williamses chubby, temporary maid, suggesting to Charley that's she's beautiful and hugely talented. Muriel is a performer and takes her Copa debut very seriously and Danny soon realizes that she will be hurt by all of this and Danny and Kathy figure a way out of all of this. The only solution is to allow her to perform as scheduled and, ultimately, the joke is on everybody when she turns out to be a terrific singer and a huge success.

So The most funniest part of it is that it turns out everyone got pranked! :)
