At breakfast, Jane announces that she and Ralph are getting married the next week. All Jane and Ralph want is a small wedding with the immediate family and no reception. This is because Janes parents are poor and Jane and Ralph can borrow a car for their honeymoon. However, at dinner that night all Ralph's parents talk about are the big weddings they gave their daughters and everything escalates. All of a sudden, it is a big wedding breakfast with hundreds of guests. The problem is that for 12 years, Tom has been saving money to buy his own cab and license, but now that he can, all of his money is going towards a wedding neither he, or Jane or Ralph really want.

This is one of my favorite films. Although the cast together for a film is very unusual, all of them work together very well and pull off a great film. This was one of Bette Davis's favorite films and it was very underappreciated by the critics as they went as far as saying that she ruined the picture. Without her it would have been nothing. It is a very sensitive film about a mother wanting her daughter to have a big and proper wedding like she never had and at the same time this mother is doing her best to hold the family together. A fantastic movie.
