All in all it's innocuous with infrequent laughs. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Good cast, competent direction can't save this seemingly interminable nostalgia flood.

Curtiz knocks it together without so much as breaking sweat. Full Review
Irene Dunne and William Powell have captured to a considerable extent the charm of the play by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- Powell is nothing less than magnificent as the mustached philosophizing patriarch, and Dunne casts a warm glow beside him. Full Review
One of the best family films ever made which resulted in a N.Y. Film Critics Award for Powell. This delightful comedy based on Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse's Broadway play provides a look at family life in New York City during the 1880's. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Actor--William Powell. This classic also features Irene Dunn, Edmund Gwenn and a young Elizabeth Taylor.
Based on the popular stage play, which was adapted from Clarence Day Jr.'s own childhood reminiscences, about growing up in 1880s Manhattan with his stern, but loving, father, wise mother, and three younger brothers.
