Great Family Movie - Mr Hobbs Takes a Vacation

If you love classic movies, Jimmy Stewart, family movies, a good laugh or all of the above, you need to rent or purchase Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation.  This movie is about Mr. Hobbs (Jimmy Stewart) who just wants to take a restful, uneventful vacation and get out of the city.  His wife (Maureen O'Hara) wants to take the entire family to the seashore and what ensues is the typical family vacation that we can all relate to with lots of fun but also loads of drama (mostly of the teenage variety).  The Steve Martin movie Cheaper By The Dozen 2, is a nod towards this classic movie.

This movie is from the early 60's and it is funny to see that the problems parents deal with today with their family are the same problems Mr. Hobbs dealt with in 1962.

Let me know if you have seen this movie and if you enjoyed it.  If you haven't seen it, I think it would be worth your time to pop some popcorn, snuggle under a fluffy blanket on the couch and turn on this movie.

Hi, Anita...yes, I've seen this movie several times. I always wanted to be Maureen O'Hara and I wanted to marry Jimmy Stewart. :)))
An adorable movie.
