Movie Info

An enjoyable Durante vehicle, this movie boasts a family of acrobats who begin finding money all over their house. Turns out a squirrel has been stealing money from their skin-flint next door neighbor and hiding it in their house. When the FBI comes to investigate their sudden turn of luck, things get hectic but not too hectic for a little romance to be started on the side. Typical light-weight entry in the comedy arena, but still entertaining.

Charming is exactly the word for this movie, and cute too. A cute, nice little story about two families one richer and one poorer. It's a really good movie, and I liked it.

This peculiar film attempts to be heartwarming, but it is really very strange. I liked the squirrel, though.
