Often-told tale of a single father meeting and falling in love with a single mother, planning to wed despite the fact their mutual children do not get along. Van Heflin and Patricia Neal are certainly well-matched in the leads, and Heflin in particular gives a sharply-observed performance, but contrivances take over Joseph Hoffman's script and the whole pre-sitcom venture soon runs aground. Nice opening, several very good scenes, but ultimately nothing special. Aimed at wholesome family audiences of the 1950s (who may have felt TV's "The Brady Bunch" some 18 years later was but a retread), this passes muster as nostalgia, but it isn't a memorable vehicle for either star. ** from ****
