About the Movie
Oscar-winner Spencer Tracy ("Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde") received his fourth nomination as an exasperated banker who has misgivings about his engaged daughter's groom. Oscar-winner Elizabeth Taylor ("Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," "National Velvet") portrays the daughter. With Oscar-nominees Billie Burke ("The Wizard of Oz") and Russ Tamblyn ("Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," "Peyton Place"). Directed by Academy Award-winning director Vincente Minnelli ("An American in Paris," "Gigi") and produced by Academy Award-recipient Pandro S. Berman ("Ivanhoe," "Top Hat"). Nominated for Best Picture and Screenplay, this hilarious look at family chaos spawned a sequel. Although remade in 1991 with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton, this classic is considered by many as the best.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A honey of a picture of American family life.
Fresh: Under Vincente Minelli's crisp direction, the fun rarely lets up.
Fresh: This ostensibly lighthearted film about Spencer Tracy's Kafkaesque attempts to bring off his daughter's wedding is one of the bleakest films of a bleak decade.
Fresh: Thoroughly enchanting comedy about the trials and tribulations a middle-aged family man faces when the daughter he dotes on decides to get married.
One of my all time favorites
I absolutely love this movie. It is funny and heart warming. Steve Martin is great in this movie!
is this movie any good at all because why did only one person review it?i haven't seen it probably will watch it tonight just browsing web for reviews.
Good but too dated
Hey iTunes - we're looking for the more up-to-date version with Steve Martin. This is an oldie and goodie, but really toooooooo dated.
