Storyline

When the Burkes loose their jobs in New York, they have to move to Arizona, where Tom has an job-offer in the management of a small company for children's clothing. Unfortunately Tom's new boss Sirus Lovelin turns out to be extremely fond of the traditional American family and automatically assumes Amanda to be housewife and mother - but the Burkes don't even have children! To not offend him, they "hire" two kids they met prowling the streets. When they turn out witty, but nasty and impertinent, the Burkes want to rid themselves of them, but are entangled already too deeply in their lie... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Kid-friendly movie
2 July 2005 | by lucyg53See all my reviews

Okay, it may not be Casablanca, but I did enjoy this movie. It was a Disney movie , at a time when Disney was still making movies that children could watch. What a shame that kids 20 years later can't have something this decent to watch. I would recommend it to parents who would like to sit down and watch a movie with their kids , although it now is a bit dated, that they don't worry about how many four-letter words will be in each scene. Bill Hudson and Cindy Williams did a great job. They also did a television series along the same line. I'd love to see it out on DVD. It was on , I think, the Family Channel in either 1986 or'87. I believe there were enough episodes for a DVD.Maybe Disney will release it in the near future also.
