Lame, awful and embarrassingly bad
7 January 2011 | by mikhail080See all my reviews

All the humor in this episode is purely unintentional. Who ever or what ever gave Lucille Ball the idea that audiences wanted to see her sing and dance? It was only funny in "I Love Lucy" because she was so terrible! Here she tries to play it straight with the help of a game but in-over-her-head Carol Burnett -- and the results are woeful.

And of course Lucy plops her untalented teenage kids into the middle of it all! It's only funny for the bizarre costumes and song choices. The writers stole a punchline from Mae West's "Belle of the Nineties" and gave it to Burnett! The aged Lucille Ball in a high school play? Backed up by Burnett and cart-wheel turning Gale Gordon? This doesn't work on so many levels!
