Fitfully funny comedy about differing parenting methods, Never quite escapes its stage origins, and some of the characterizations are a bit shallow. Crawford's character is especially obnoxious, as is the epynomous Tony (who unfortunately we never get to see the spanking he so richly deserves). Rigby's crochety grandpa and Hurst's anarchist get the best moments.
