Storyline

Jim Bolton, a well-off businessman from Chicago hears that his daughter Doris is pregnant in New York. Since he did not even know she was seeing anyone he fears the worst. Unbeknownst to him, his daughter and the father of his grandchild, Walter marry shortly before Jim's arrival in New York. Upon his arrival he is shocked to hear that Doris and Walter plan not only a natural childbirth but the birth will take place in their apartment NOT a hospital. To make matters worse, Walter states that he personally will deliver their child. Jim at first doubts Walter's sincerity and expertise but begins to gain respect for Walter after he calls in a doctor to consult and is told that Walter is very prepared for almost any contingency.

An instant sitcom
5 February 2015 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Just-married New York City couple, residing in an East Village hovel (apparently rat-infested, and with drunks sleeping in the doorways), have prided themselves on living a totally independent lifestyle--the husband is even determined to deliver his wife's baby at home (the point, one assumes, is that hospitals are a rip-off). Enter David Janssen as the girl's father, a suit-and-tie advertising executive from Denver, who finds his daughter's arrangement rather appalling. Lousy generation-gap comedy-drama by William Goodhart, adapted from his own Broadway play (which starred Henry Fonda as the Establishment dad), wants to have a two-way argument on the facts, but the couple's sunny, optimistic outlook is kiddie-cute and illogical. These two seem foolish turning down the father's many offers of financial help (although dimply Pete Duel does have a moment where he questions his own motives as purely selfish). A few funny bits near the beginning are nearly canceled out by stagnant third act wherein the daughter goes into labor. Sterilize the sheets! Boil the water! Find a better movie! *1/2 from ****
