Reviews:  Screenwriter Nunnally Johnson adapted the novel by author Edward Streeter, whose work was also the basis of FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1950), into this domestic comedy. James Stewart and MAUREEN O'HARA star as Roger and Peggy Hobbs, a St. Louis couple with a large brood who desire a seaside vacation. Renting a cottage by the ocean is just the first step in a summer fraught with disasters, including a couch potato son, a shy daughter with newly installed braces, a pair of grown daughters who have married badly, and a local yachtsman with eyes for Peggy. Not to mention the ramshackle state of the shoreline abode, Roger and Peggy's new grandparent status, and incidents involving a sexy neighbor, a sailboat regatta and bird watching.
