You Can’t Take It with You (1938) Rated NR

A man from a rich family gets engaged to a woman from and eccentric family. Starring Jean Arthur, Lionel Barrymore, and James Stewart.

This film is a cute romp of humor. It takes on the social and class messages of the 1930s. The U.S. is still in a depression, and we have the rich banking family with generations in the same business against the eccentric family that believes in living life and having fun. The son of the banker falls in love with a secretary, who is a member of the eccentric fun-loving family. When they become engaged, the families must meet and learn each other’s uncommon behaviors. The film is funny throughout and keeps you on your toes. The actors are wonderful in their roles; although, the ending seems forced and unusually harsh. It’s a film that is still worth a watch.
