Far from being one of Edgar's best
23 January 2004 | by funguy6662003See all my reviews

The Edgar Kennedy series, also known as "The Average Man," was a perfect example of a great film comedian overcoming weak material. Many of the films do not hold up well due to a lack of logic. Here, Edgar's lazy brother in law and meddlesome mother in law try to get his wife to divorce him. The problem with the film is, Edgar is their bread and butter, without him they would have noone to sponge off of.
