Newlyweds Eddie & Betty (Joe DeRita and Christine McIntyre) move into their honeymoon house, only to find her relatives waiting to move in for a few months. The in-laws are soon eating everything in sight, and taking over the household. Friend Dick comes up with the idea for he and his wife (Dorothy Granger) to pose as Eddie's relatives, alumni of a sanitarium, to scare Betty's family away. The plan works, all too well to the newlyweds' regret.

This Joe DeRita solo effort again shows how much funnier he was solo than as a Stooge. Joe's in-laws come to stay for a while, and are housebreakers to the extreme! After they show themselves to be ungrateful slobs, Joe and his wife enlist a co-worker and his wife to come over and act even nuttier than the in-laws! This succeeds in driving them out, but then THEY want to move in!! This will make you want to throw your roommate(s) out!!

I dunno, I thought this one was pretty good. It's no lost classic, but the feigned-insanity gags and obnoxious in-laws are nicely portrayed (with Dorothy Granger especially good) even if the material itself isn't quite up to par. I also liked the bit with Joe reading a book on committing the perfect murder, and said book crediting Ellwood Ullman as author. There's just one thing I'm uncertain of. How the heck did Joe DeRita end up married to a hottie like Christine McIntyre? Sigh [:-)]

Disappointing Ed Bernds effort. Could have been so much better with a young Joe DeRita paired with Christine McIntyre and Dorothy Granger.
