For quite some time now, the lascivious middle-aged oil and butter merchant, Klearchos Zougalas, has been trying to convince his beautiful next-door neighbour, Iro, to join him on a weekend out of town just the two of them. However, when opportunity knocks, Klearchos will appoint himself as the ever-watchful guardian of his vertically-challenged son in law, Machos, giving the impression to his wife, Marina, that their daughter's husband (and not he) is prone to extramarital shenanigans. So, without delay, the father and son set off on a promising vacation by the sea, unbeknownst to them that the worried mother and her daughter intend on paying them a visit. But, did the boys manage to stay out of trouble? Written by Nick Riganas

What a movie!
24 June 2005 | by nsa031See all my reviews

I have seen the movie at least thirty times, and is by far the best Greek comedy of that era. The script, the dialogs the screenplay and general everything are perfect. Vasiliadou, Aulonitis gave the performance of their life. Although the movie is short has all the neccessery things to make you laughing. Especially the sequences with Vasiliadou and Rizos, are the best parts of the movie. Who doesn't remember the unbelievable "ego simera skizo marines". What else you can say for the best Greek comedy in the history of Greece. I hope will see it soon in DVD. Everybody who respect himself must buy this movie. You must see this movie, you will remember it forever. 10 out of 10
