Reviews
Mine: Wonderfully lowkey comedy. Grant is in topnotch form. Fun to see the view of Connecticut portrayed.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Slick comedy of city couple attempting to build a house in the country; expertly handled, with Cary at his peak. And no one ever described room colors better than Loy! Norman Panama and Melvin Frank scripted, from Eric Hodgins' novel. Also shown in computer-colored version.
