Silver Screen Series
Father's Little Dividend is a delightful sequel to the hilarious Father Of The Bride original, which highlights the pre-wedding craziness that Stanley (Spencer Tracy) and Ellie (Joan Bennett) Banks suffer in order to see their beloved daughter Kay (Elizabeth Taylor) wed. But the uproarious chaos returns when Kay and her husband Buckley (Don Taylor) become parents in Father's Little Dividend. When Stanley hears the news that he is going to be a grandfather, he is less than delighted with his new title. By the time the baby is born, he comes to terms with being Grandpa Banks, but Junior won't let Stanley come near him without screaming hysterically. To make matters worse, the maternal and paternal grandparents are at odds over petty things, and Stanley once again finds himself at the end of his rope. By the time Stanley briefly loses his grandson on a trip to the park, he is frantic and frazzled-worn out from the constant comical chaos of being a grandfather.
