Storyline

Nicky and Tacy are going to be married. Nicky wants to save up money for a house, but Tacy dreams of starting off with their own home on wheels--a trailer. After the two are hitched, they hitch up their trailer and begin their honeymoon. The humor comes from several disastrous adventures the couple has while traveling including Tacy's awkward attempt to cook dinner in a moving trailer, and a cliffhanging ride through the mountains that nearly destroys their marriage.

In the closing shot where Lucy and Desi embrace and the camera pulls away, the car seems to be missing. However, just as the screen fades to black for the closing credits, the right front corner of Mrs. Tewitt's car is visible in the lower left corner of the screen. See more »

What a fun movie!
21 July 2000 | by Monika-5See all my reviews

If you love I Love Lucy you'll love The Long, Long Trailer! I remember watching this video many times with my grandma a few years back. Lucy and Desi are just precious. The scenes with Lucy falling out of the trailer into the mud and where she stays in the moving trailer trying to make dinner are reason enough to rent this movie!
