At odds in Ma and Pa Kettle Back on The Farm, now the Kettles and their daughter-in-law's parents are friends and vacationing together in Paris. The delicate balance of social wit and screwball comedy that permeated classics such as The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle is back. It is worth noting that 3 of the best Kettle films, The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle, Ma and Pa Kettle Go To Town, and Ma and Pa Kettle on Vacation, were the three directed by Charles Lamont. This is a classic Kettle film. While it isn't as smooth as the other two Lamont Films, this one is still a must see. Ma's reaction to the entertainment, and Pa's innocent involvement in a spy ring are among the highlights that this film has to offer.
