It makes you feel happy. And that's not nothing.

Paramount may have made a more appealing, more tenderly human and amusing picture than "Going My Way," during its many years of film-making, but if so, I have missed it.

Gooey, warm, comfortable.

Even though I love a good family film now and then, this was too much even for me. It was like having a root canal of cream filling.

It is so well directed by McCarey and played with such a sure touch that it just manages to avoid sermonizing or oversentimentality.

Rich, warm and human to the core.
