Excellent movie for Bess and Richard
8 November 2005 | by (Goshen, IN, USA) – See all my reviews

I love to watch Richard Thomas in comedy roles and this is no exception. He is certain that this beautiful newscaster is destined to be his wife, even if she is definitely marrying a snob with snobbish mother. His attempts to win her while assuring his parents he is getting married are enough to make you cheer him on. He even writes a beautiful song which is sung to her by Fabian. His folks continue to plan the wedding to be held in their back yard. Her parents are rather on his side, but mostly just watch the efforts made to win their daughter. He never gives up, right down to the last minute, becoming the "Knight on a white horse". I love feel-good movies and this is one I highly recommend. (He did a good job on Barefoot In The Park, also with Bess Armstrong....much better than the movie. His talent at bringing out the comedy in his role is superb.)
