Storyline

Middle-aged Harry lives comfortably with his wife Edith and his daughter and her husband. Though rather sour and a bit mean, he is in fact content. So when Edith finds she is pregnant again he is anything but overjoyed. Apart from the changes it will mean, he is now seen as some sort of older superman in town. Meanwhile his daughter sees child bearing as a way out of the extra housework she is having to do, the achievement of which starts to put pressure on her increasingly tired husband.

Quotes

Dr. Kimbrough: Harry, doesn't Edith look a little tired?
Harry M. Lambert: She goes to bed early every night.
Dr. Kimbrough: I don't mean tired from lack of sleep. I mean this house. It's awfully big for her to take care of.
Harry M. Lambert: Why this house is her pride and joy. They don't build houses like this anymore, you know. Granite foundation. Copper pipes.
Grace Kimbrough: Edith doesn't have a granite foundation, or copper pipes. Why don't you two go on a vacation.

One of my favorite romantic 60's comedies
4 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have to put this one on my personal top 10 list. Its quaint and very well cast. Maureen O'Sullivan is awesome, and Paul Ford, well what can you say about him, he is magnificent. They play the expecting middle-aged couple to perfection. Everything about this movie is classy, especially the ladies outfits. Women knew how to dress back then, and looked like ladies. The dialogue is snappy & funny, and the film never drags, but is funny from start to finish.

If you want a nice little movie to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon, to cheer you up, this is one DVD to pop in the machine and watch.
