So You're Having In-Law Trouble (1949)
*** (out of 4)
Joe McDoakes comedy has him throwing a fit when his wife's parents and brother decide to come for a visit because he knows they're going to want to stay a while. Things take a darker turn when his own parents and long-lost cousin show up. This is another extremely funny entry in the series as the entire run of shorts was really hitting a high point and delivering plenty of nice laughs. This one here doesn't have any masterpiece writing but it's simple enough to where anyone can release to Joe and feel sorry for the guy. One of the on-running jokes has Cleo Moore playing his cousin who isn't scared to plant a wet one on Joe. She's certainly extremely hot and adds some nice sex appeal to the film and I'm sure many will know her from upcoming film noir films including ON DANGEROUS GROUND. Billy Gray from THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is in fine form as the annoying little brother and Clifton Young returns in his Homer role. The movie contains one big laugh after another making this one of the more entertaining entries in the series.
