...and so it came to this, this fluffy yet dated romantic comedy would turn out to be Doris Day's final film, though no-one knew that at the time, but the death of the film's producer, Martin Melcher, who was also Day's husband contributed to that. So, despite it being funny, there is an added poignancy with this that it was Day's swansong. It has widowed mother Abby McClure (Day) struggling to juggle her 3 sons Flip (John Findlater), Jason (Richard S. Steele) and Mitch (Jimmy Bracken), and her late husbands timber business. Then she bumps into an old friend, widowed chemical engineer Jake Iverson (Brian Keith) who lives with his daughter Stacey (Barbara Hershey). Abby hasn't seen Jake for a while but something sparks between them, and they start dating quietly, then on a whim, they get married in Las Vegas. However, they never told their children, imagine the shock when the McClure boys find a man in Mommy's bed!! But, they all have to get used to living with one another, Stacey wants to be the woman of the house, but can't get used to that with Abby around, while Flip can't stand Jake. It's a product of it's time, rather like a smaller scale version of Yours, Mine & Ours (1968). As one film career ended with this film, another one began with this one, as comedian George Carlin made his debut in this.
