You Can't Take It With YouBoy from stuffy family meets girl and falls in love. Girl invites boy home to meet her family. Boy and parents arrive an evening early and finds his girlfriends eccentric, "mad", family totally unprepared for dinner guests, let alone the stuffy Kirby family! To complicate matters further, the Sycamores (girl’s family) own a piece of real estate key to Mr. Kirby’s business success, and they refuse to sell. During this ill-fated evening, tempers flare, fireworks are set off and the police arrive to take everyone to jail! Will the hilarious antics of the Sycamore family stand in the way of Alice's future happiness or will Tony be able to show his parents that their way of life needs a little madness!
