There is no terror in their eyes, or in their voices. That is left for a much more dangerous, serious world that had not been written about yet. Existence, marriage, relationships, and life in this play aren't even questioned.

Love is held in high esteem in a world where love will seemingly remain alive forever. I don't have to worry about these questions - in six weeks I will be playing the part of Joe - and he just works and wonders what is wrong with everyone.

It's a cute story about a father who is totally lost in the world of out-of-control, over-the-top wedding preparations.

Although wedding customs have changed in the past 85 years, the obsession with "the perfect wedding" hasn't - If you doubt me, watch just one episode of a wedding reality show, and you'll see my point - so the story still feels current in spite of outdated protocol.

A fun read - especially for those who have ever tried to give their daughter everything she wants, only to have her want something totally new.

Apr 18, Stephanie McCown rated it it was amazing. This book is thoroughly entertaining and I loved every page! If you have only seen the movie s , give this book a read. While it was written in , I am sure that much of it still rings true today.

I enjoyed the book for its simplicity, as it is a straightforward story of one man's struggle against an epic giant The story is as charming as it is endearing, and I highly recommend it!

Jun 02, Sarah rated it it was ok. This quick little read is every bit as enjoyable as its film family. Banks is one of the most endearing gruff old grumps to ever grace a page. His daughter and wife have to put up with as much from them as he takes from them and the rest of the wedding party.

Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. Jul 12, Mike Stephens rated it really liked it. Apr 23, Garrett Zecker rated it liked it. It is a definitive proclamation of the Hollywood Atomic Family - the image, reputation, and canonization of what we consider to be the Rockwellian 'good ol days.

It was a classic black-and-white film, and it remains one of the most recognizable eras in history for our country. I enjoy films like this, but I also recognize that they are a blatant statement that flies int he face of the duality of humanity - the iconography of what we expect was the good ol' days the Rockwellian America and the binary opposite of reality.

I have had the conversations that exist in this play in real life, and I found that to be the most entertaining of all, but at no point is the audience ever afraid for the groom or the bride.

It is a painting of a time that never seemingly existed. The conflicts are buttoned up, the dialogue is period, and the characters grin through the turmoil they are facing because it almost seems as though they know everything will be okay as well.

There is no terror in their eyes, or in their voices. That is left for a much more dangerous, serious world that had not been written about yet.

Existence, marriage, relationships, and life in this play aren't even questioned. Love is held in high esteem in a world where love will seemingly remain alive forever.

Very funny play. Well-drawn characters. Dec 13, Julia rated it it was amazing. This is a laugh out loud book! We soon learn, however, that the "few" friends idea is out.

Then trouble really begins. The guest list grows larger each day, a caterer is called in, florists, furniture movers and dressmakers take over, and the Banks household is soon caught in turmoil—not to mention growing debt.

When Kay, in a fit of temper, calls off the wedding, everyone's patience snaps. But all is set right, and the wedding despite more last-minute crises comes off beautifully.

In the end, the father of the bride is a happy, proud man, glad that the wedding is over, but knowing too that it was worth all the money and aggravation to start his daughter off so handsomely on the road to married life.
