"The many scenes of harrassed father Stanley Banks (Spencer Tracy) who faced daughter Kay's (Elizabeth Taylor) marriage with overbearing caterers, exorbitant costs and other nightmarish visions of what might go wrong, ending with the tearjerking scene of Kay's post-wedding phone call to lovingly say 'thank you' to her father."

"A satirical film about the difficult preparations and rites of matrimony with its opening scene of well-to-do lawyer Stanley T. Banks (Spencer Tracy), collapsed in a chair, looking back on the wedding he has just lived through for his beautiful daughter Kay (Elizabeth Taylor) -- with his exasperated reactions to exorbitant costs and how everyone else was spending his money, and the overbearing caterers: "An experienced caterer can make you ashamed of your house in fifteen minutes"; also the segm"
