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. Written by S.V. Sassi

Sweet Family Movie
26 October 2018 | by lifesoboringSee all my reviews

A play-like movie with fine acting. Some clever and funny lines in the dialogue. It's overall humorous but it is not a "mad-cap" or outrageous or raucous kind of humor. You wouldn't say. "This movie is hysterical." It's funny in a low-key way, and cute. The main thrust of the story is the tension and conflict between the daughter/husband and the father. The father is very worried about his daughter having her baby delivered at home by his (non-doctor) son-in-law and tries to bring in outside assistance. But they end up working together and it makes the whole story a happy one.
