Movie Info

As the Hollywood buzz couple, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher took the lead roles in this musical comedy about a salesgirl who rescues an infant from a fall and is mistaken for the child's mother. She ends up taking it in, and, of course, her new beau, the son of her boss, is thought to be the father--which causes a bit of a scandal.

Audience Reviews for Bundle of Joy

It's clearly a B movie but I love it for what it's worth. A romantic comedy with Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (not to mention a cameo with Lauren Bacall!) about a single woman accidentally adopting a child after getting fired. Such a great timepiece into 1956! I keep thinking, "wow this is what my dad used to live like with grandma and grandpa". Imagining Debbie Reynolds as my grandma? Yes please!

Cute remake of Bachelor Mother,about a Salesgirl who finds a Baby on a Doorstep & everyone assumes it is hers. I Love Debbie in this Role, but it's a Toss Up for me who I prefer, Debbie Reynolds or Ginger Rogers in the same role, both comic genius with extraordinary talents in Acting, Singing, Dancing, & both with that irresistible "Cute" Factor.I never realized what a beautiful Sinatra~esque Voice Eddie Fisher had(Debbie's Real Life Hubby at the Time), maybe that's what was the appeal that got the Womanizing Cad two of the most amazing Women of the Time(He left Debbie Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor in case your not acquainted with that bit of Hollywood Scandal)

This is a good remake if you like the storyline. This was a remake of the black and white film, 'Bachelor Mother' with Rogers and Niven
