    Ain't We Got Fun is a lot like a Season Four episode of the Untouchables. There's a lot of pathos, cardboard villains, little screen time for the Untouchables, and not much action. What saves this one at least partially in my eyes is a brilliant performance by Cameron Mitchell as comic Johnny Paycheck. It's one of the best guest shots of the series and makes up for some of the episode's deficiencies. Joseph Buloff also does a nice job here as Benny Hoff. One also wonders whether or not the late, great country singer Johnny Paycheck watched this episode and chose his stage moniker from Mitchell's character. Guess we'll never know the answer to that one.moreless
