Irene Dunne and William Powell have captured to a considerable extent the charm of the play by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse.
Curtiz knocks it together without so much as breaking sweat.
Powell is nothing less than magnificent as the mustached philosophizing patriarch, and Dunne casts a warm glow beside him.
All in all it's innocuous with infrequent laughs.
Good cast, competent direction can't save this seemingly interminable nostalgia flood.
Dunn and Powell are adorable, musty charm in this sweet family classic.
'Life with Father' may be worth watching for a little historical perspective of the late 19th century. I am glad that wasn't my period in life though.
Irene Dunn and William Powell radiate likeable charm like a bakery throws out smells good from a block away in this slice-o-life family drama depicting "the good ol'days". There's a way things should be done, a way a family should be raised, there's the moral fiber of a family, and these considerations are on the table of a loving couple who nonetheless disagree about the answers to these thoughts and battle the whole movie for their own point of view, and battle each in their own way. Its a fun contest.
An interesting, intelligent, and realistic family drama with a great cast. I really liked it, although it was a bit boring at times.
i'd forgotten all about this charming film based on a long running broadway play. william powell is hilarious as the always exasperated father of a red-headed brood in late 19th century new york. the wonderful irene dunne keeps the family on course. 15 yr old elizabeth taylor has a small part. delightful :)
