Storyline

Anne and "Poppy" Rose are the average American family, with three quirky kids. Anne has a good heart and gives lost cats and dogs a home - and one day also the orphan Jane, a problem child who already tried to kill herself once. At first Poppy is worried and wants to get rid of her, but with love and patience they finally manage to integrate her into the family. Just then Anne invites another orphan, the aggressive handicapped Jimmy-John, to their summer vacation. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

a look at what might have been...
31 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of all Cary Grant's films "Room For One More" shows what might have been had Grant taken a different road with his career and done a television show. The film plays like a well written sitcom and is very entertaining and touching in its own way. Of course, arguably the greatest movie star of all time would never have condescended to do TV...and that's how it should have been... but IF he had chosen to, here is work to show he would have become perhaps one of the greatest television stars of all time. Would you rather be remembered for being the "perfect" male or as a befuddled and decidedly overmatched father? As for myself , I would choose the former... though I am much closer to the latter.
