Full House (1985)

Full House (1985) logoAfter marrying three years ago, Marsha and Paul Hatfield finally find their ideal home. The only problem is that they can't meet the mortgage repayments, so to pay the bill they share the burden with an unmarried couple, Diana and Murray. The two couples couldn't be more unlike each other. The Hatfields are neat and prim - Paul is prudish and often keeps lists to keep in order; she was pretty in a Freeman's catalogue-type way.
