Mr. Banks runs a tight household until his daughter Kay surprises everyone with the announcement that she is engaged. The couple doesn’t want a “big” wedding—just a simple affair with a few friends. Before long, though, Mr. Banks’ life becomes a sprawling circus of caterers, florists, and furniture movers, in this comedy that inspired both the 1950 Spencer Tracy movie and the 1991 Steve Martin reboot.
