Storyline

During his honeymoon, the irrepressible Larry Burton is dragged off into the jungle by a large-sized male baboon and is presumed dead - eaten by apes. However, defying all odds, Larry survives and, after many comic-strip-type adventures, returns home to re-establish himself as head of the household - little realising that his wife, Sally, has married the staid and conservative Boyd Flatt during the intervening ten years, and that she is now the mother of a bright and lively nine year old daughter. Larry's return home causes considerable upheaval and consternation for the family - not least being his subsequent attempts to woo a reluctant Gabriella, his former sister-in-law, who had taken a distinct dislike to him prior to his disappearance and is still definitely opposed to the idea of getting to know Larry on a more intimate basis.

The worst of sitcom excess
26 March 2009 | by abchulettSee all my reviews

I still remember seeing the premiere episode of this dreadful show. It was jaw-droppingly bad. Everything that could be done wrong WAS done wrong. Stiffly staged, WAY overacted, unfunny lines punched up to a ridiculous degree by a roaring laugh track that clearly didn't belong.

Remember the sitcom being made in Annie Hall? That was a work of art compared to this tripe. It shocks me to see others here posting positive comments, but I am heartened by the low rating users have overall given.

Bronson Pinchot deserved better. Heck, Pia Zadora would have deserved better.
