If the name of the car Ted is selling sounds familiar - nine years after the release of this film, the Dodge division of Chrysler came out with its Coronet model in 1949. It was in production until 1959, and was brought back in 1965 until 1976. See more »

I thought that if you wanted to marry a girl you were supposed to ask her father...
Harry C. Thomas:
You must be talking about some other father, some other family. Not a family with only one father and three daughters. Nobody asks him anything. He's lucky if he gets told.

The film begins in the Thomas household. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas (Frank Morgan and Irene Rich) have three daughters...Mary (Ann Rutherford), Evelyn (Gloria DeHaven) and Harriet (Virginia Weidler). Most of the film is about Mary and her relationship with Ted (John Shelton)--a young who she marries about midway through the picture. However, things are not perfect between Ted and Mary, as they are overly idealistic about how easy life will be...and when they end up having a misunderstanding it turns into a huge fight that might just destroy the marriage. In the midst of this is befuddled Mr. Thomas...who just wants everything to be quiet!
The acting is nice in this one and it's nice to see Morgan playing someone who is less stupid than his usual characters. The script is enjoyable and breezy but nothing extraordinary. All in all, worth seeing and fun.
