Synopsis:
When grumpy grandpa Roger Hobbs (James Stewart) suggests a quiet vacation to his lovely wife Peggy (Maureen O'Hara), he's thinking of a romantic break for just the two of them. What he gets, however, is something quite different! Before he knows what's happening, Peggy has organised a full family reunion - in the oldest, ugliest and most dangerous beach house ever! Now Roger's life has become a living nightmare as he struggles to cope with delinquent toddlers, TV-obsessed teenagers, a pair of very odd sons-in-law and a young daughter falling for a local heartthrob (Fabian). Returning to work will seem like a dream after this vacation!

Sixties Time Capsule. - Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
04/12/2012

So-so period piece stolen by a cameo by John McGiver as a banking dullard with a fascination for ornithology; particularly in a scene where he teaches James Stewart how to walk... Otherwise, few laughs, but blandly inoffensive typical late Stewart harassed-dad farce.
