After Fox dropped the series a couple of years passed and it moved to Universal for the remaining 12 films. This is the first of the entries in the Universal Rathbone and Bruce Holmes series, and the third of the over-all series of Rathbone and Bruce Holmes series. A fair start for Universal. On Blu-Ray.

They have an uncle Mickey a relative who pays their rent to live beyond their means in Beverly Hills and basically what they go through living outside their comfort zone and the things they encounter. You have Vivian played by Marisa tomei who escapes from rehab who is Mickeys daughter. In turn for him paying the family rent they watch after VivianAl Arkin plays the father a 65 year old who refuses retirement. It's just fun to see what the family goes through. It's really good comic writing.
