Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The endearing Huggett family first appeared as characters in Holiday Camp. Three films, of which this was the second, followed their progress and later a long-running radio series ensured their popularity. Here, Joe is standing for election as a councillor but runs into trouble when he proposes a war memorial site on land part-owned by his wife - and she won't sell. Chaos follows when niece Diana forges her aunt's signature and puts her uncle in a pickle. Jack Warner and Kathleen Harrison are wonderful as mum and dad and yes, that's a young Diana Dors as the troublesome niece.
