| Go to Town-- in Paris
Ma and Pa Kettle on Vaction is not a remake of Ma and Pa Kettle Go to Town, but there are similarities. In this outing the Parkers return to the series as they offer Ma and Pa a trip to Paris. The situation of country folk in the big city sets up the jokes. Pa being tricked into smuggling stolen documents sets up the plot.

While maintaining a a level of comedy on par with the previous movie, the Ma and Pa characters are being stretched a bit. Once again, Pa is chased by crooks through a big city. In this case, Pa is given stolen documents for safekeeping while he is on the plane to Paris. The leader of the spy ring in need of the documents is played by Sig Ruman. Ruman was capable of playing a character as outlandish as Ma and Pa, but he held back just enough to not overshadow them. It is his performance that makes me like this movie a little more than Go to Town.
