Yes, it is a comedy!
13 August 2001 | by lyndieb42See all my reviews

I saw this on TV a long time age, loved it, and wish to see it again. It is funny in ways that are unexpected, when communication is unclear and people try to do the right thing anything may occur. The look back in time to early television for an older audience is interesting and the end really occurs at the end of the story. This can be watched by all age groups as it is not violent.
