Extremely clean and silly
16 April 2019 | by HotToastyRagSee all my reviews

Goodness, this movie is silly. With every joke in the book you can think of that would make Will Hays chuckle with pride, this is the precursor to every 1950s comedy where premarital sex is the greatest sin.

Barbara Hale, after a recent divorce from Robert Young, is about to marry Robert Hutton. She faints while walking down the aisle and the doctor discovers she's pregnant. And, since no respectable engaged couple would ever get into that kind of trouble, everyone knows it's Robert Young's baby. All of a sudden, Bob is back in her life, and they're dealing with custody battles and legal contracts. And, since Hollywood was, and still is one would argue, very moralistic, the majority of the plot might involve the divorced soon-to-be parents falling back in love.

Seriously, folks, this one is very silly. It will make you groan and roll your eyes during ridiculous car chases, wide-eyed gasps when bystanders hear an argument over which man is the father, and supposedly funny plot points like Robert Young going on an all-night quest for pickled leche nuts for Barbara's pregnant cravings.
