It is not very often that the sequel to a successful film turns out to be even half as successful or rewarding as the original picture was.
This sequel to the smash-hit Father of the Bride is inferior in every respect, but it was made quickly, cheaply and generated profit for MGM.
Spencer Tracy could hold his own acting opposite anyone, and in this excellent sequel to Father of the Bride, he proves that not even a baby can upstage him.
Unexpectedly appealing sequel, with much warm and insightful comedy about family life, pregnancy and babies.
