Spencer Tracy received an Oscar nomination for his performance in this classic comedy. Stanley T. Banks (Tracy) is a securely middle-class lawyer whose daughter Kay (Elizabeth Taylor) announces that she's going to marry her beau Buckley Dunstan (Don Taylor). From that point on, everything in Stanley's life is turned upside down. His wife Ellie (Joan Bennett) wants Kay to have the kind of formal wedding that she and Stanley never had, and between meeting his soon-to-be in-laws, the socially prominent Herbert and Doris Dunstan (Moroni Olsen and Billie Burke), his man-to-man talk with the groom, hosting the engagement party, financing the increasingly lavish wedding, and wondering if Kay and Buckley will resolve their differences before arriving at the altar, Stanley barely has time to deal with his own considerable anxieties about his advancing age and how his "little girl" became a grown woman. Director Vincente Minnelli reunited with the principal cast a year later for a sequel, Father's Little Dividend; and the movie was remade in 1991 with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton. Mark Deming, Rovi

Spencer Tracy gives an outstanding performance of a dad who finds his daughter has seemingly grown-up overnight. She's in love, and he feels that he is no longer "the man" in her life. Besides the fact that he isn't particularly fond of her choice of a prospective husband, the costs of the wedding keep rising. Added to those hurdles, the final insult comes when he can't fit into his old tux. Joan Bennet plays the level-headed mother. Elizabeth Taylor is, as ever, gorgeous even in black and white.
