In this sequel to Father of the Bride (1950), Stanley Banks learns that his daughter Kay is going to have a baby. When they get the news everyone except Stanley is overjoyed. His wife and grandmother-to-be Ellie broadcasts it everywhere and all Stan can do is worry about the practical things like how his son-in-law Buckley can afford it. Well, having not long ago paid for the wedding, Stanley has no intention of bearing any of the expenses involved. Buckley's parents and Ellie are overjoyed at the news and virtually take over redecorating the young couple's new house. Crisis and false alarms take over their lives and when the child is born, the only person he doesn't seem to like is Stanley. A walk in the park - and absolute panic when Stanley misplaces his grandson - seems to resolve the situation.Written by

I'm sorry, I didn't realize. Is Kay there?
But of course she, where would she be?

When did she leave? What time did she leave?

Not as good as the original but much better then that crappy remake with Steve Martin. This movie just seemed thrown together pretty quickly just because the first one was such a big hit that it really doesn't come together. It feels forced almost but it's a million times better then the remake. The movie is only 83 minutes and it shouldn't of been any longer. This one has Elizabeth Taylor having a baby and Spencer Tracy trying to accept the fact that he's now a grandfather. In one scene, Tracy goes to the gym to prove he isn't that old and the next morning he's stiff all over. This is a sequel that probably shouldn't of been made and you should only watch it if you loved the original.
