One of Tracy’s most endearing comic performances as the proud papa of lovely bride-to-be Taylor. Bennett is a perfect foil as his wife. Classy comedy with a superb cast at their best under Vincente Minnelli’s assured direction. Leo G. Carroll is a riot as a condescending caterer.

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.-Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, March 23, 2011
Rotten: On the critical side: Minnelli could have timed many of the scenes so that laughs would not have stepped on dialog tag lines.-Variety Staff, Variety, March 26, 2009
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.-Geoff Andrew, Time Out, January 26, 2006
