A Wedding in the family
27 February 2015 | by (Annandale, VA, United States) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a prosperous man who tries to extricate his wealthy family from the doldrums. This movie is based on the play by Alden Nash in which Reginald Denny played a vacillating matrimonial object (groom) and Joan Marsh the prospective bride and Billie Burke as her mother and Grant Mitchel as the depressed ex-millionaire father. Veteran actress Edna May Oliver is really cracking as the polo playing grandmother, who is also very interfering and sometimes annoying in a funny sort of way. They are in finer mettle and everyone pitches in to "rescue" them from a court clerk who wants to serve legal papers for the bills Grant Mitchell owes. The film is supposed to be off-beat comedy and a screwball slapstick, but it does not go well and the film falls short of a first rate comedy.
