Jack and Audrey Landry are a middle-aged couple who have barely gotten the hang of being a pair of "empty nesters" when their three grown daughters -- Teri, Nora, and Dahlia -- end up tumbling back home again. That's not so hard to take but just as the parents re-adjust their lifestyle to accommodate their offspring, all three of the Landry daughters fall in love. Happiness abounds until the daughters each announce they're getting married. At the same time. And guess who's footing the bill? Now it's a race to see which runs out first -- Jack and Audrey's bank account or their sanity.Written by
Similar in spirit, theme, and approach to an old Robert Young TV movie from the '70's called All My Darling Daughters, where a loving Dad faces the bizarre circumstance of preparing for a triple wedding ceremony of his daughters. Vaguely similar to Father of the Bride, but the manic hysteria of the Dad is removed in this lower-key approach.
Everybody's rich, and this film spares you from the rich jerks cliché. Everybody in the movie is the kind of a person you might like to have as a friend, even the one oddball in the bunch. There's gentle and tender sentiment, with just enough pratfalls to keep the light hearted intent intact. Nothing is overdone for cheap laughs, except maybe the yoga scene. The closeness of the sisters to one another, and with the parents: very sweet and believable. And it was nice to see Karen Valentine acting again.
Overall, a sweet diversion that's very human and makes no pretenses.
