Movie Info

The Gilberts, Larry (Bob Hope) and Mary (Ruth Hussey), and the Weavers, Jack (Don DeFore) and Kitty (Lucille Ball), are neighbors and close friends -- even though Larry and Kitty always grate on each other's nerves. When the friends' annual vacation arrives, Larry and Kitty are the only ones at the hotel, as their spouses can't make it. Stuck together for the trip, Larry and Kitty, surprisingly, fall in love. The two must now contemplate whether starting over is worth it at middle age.

    I liked it a lot! It was really funny, but not too absurd or unbelievable.
