This was the second film of a multi-picture deal Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz signed with MGM when I Love Lucy (1951) was TV's highest-rated show. (The first film was The Long, Long Trailer (1954) which made a profit of over $1.5M.) When this picture failed miserably with both critics and audiences, the balance of the contract went unfulfilled.

When Susan slips in the raft when she first starts rowing, one of the oars slides all the way into the water. In the next shot, both oars are perfectly placed in a rowing position in the raft, meanwhile Susan has not even raised herself up from the bottom of the raft. Nobody would have been positioned to move the oars in such a short period of time. See more »
Lorenzo Xavier Vega:
[pointing to Mr. Bewell's cocktail]
Say, I thought the doctor told you to taper off?
Charles Y. Bewell:
I did. I tapered off beautifully and now I'm going through the joyous process of tapering on again.

Although "The Long, Long Trailer" is an average film, it seems like a classic next to this anemic followup by Lucy and Desi, their second feature film during the run of "I Love Lucy." Lucy has a guardian angel who only she can see and she claims he looks like James Mason, which seems reasonable as he is played by James Mason. Lucy and Desi try to make the most of it, but the magic of the TV show is missing, thanks to a lame script about insecticides. Mason looks bemused, probably wondering what the heck he's doing in this movie. The cast features Schafer ("Gilligan's Island") as a meddling cousin and Kulp ("Beverly Hillbillies") as an impertinent maid.
