    You will fall in love with this movie.

    I happened to catch this movie again last night on cable. It's so heartwarming and takes you back to a simpler time in life, well maybe not so carefree, but yet you experience the love and caring of this odd collection of family and friends. Watch this once and you'll have to watch it again and again. Enjoy!!

    Wonderfully silly film classic!

    It wonderful to know that so many film classics are released on DVD for the future generations to enjoy. This is a great comedy with an extremely talented cast (including Jimmy Stewart, Jean Arthur, Lionel Barrymore, Ann Miller, and Edward Arnold), to name a few, and perfect direction by the legendary Frank Capra. Jimmy Stewart plays the suitor to Jean Arthur. Stewart is a young heir to a father's fortune and falls in love with Jean Arthur, who is the member of a very eccentric family of dancers and firework makers. The two families are completely different but somehow are connected by young love.

    Inspiring, Heartwarming Story!

    The first time I saw this movie I was so inspired I've since watched it many times. Jimmy Stewart is the son of a powerful banker who is being eaten alive by his quest for power. Jimmy's character breaks free of following his father's example and has dreams of his own -- dreams that resurface as he falls in love with a girl from an eccentric and lovable family. What he learns from them is that life is about more than money, prestige and power. This family is happy just doing the things they love rather than to follow how most of the rest of the world lives -- doing jobs they hate, growing old and crabby because life becomes dull and meaningless and frustrating. They pursue the things they love and were meant to do, trusting God to take care of all else. Their happiness is contagious and Grandpa, the patriarch of this family is someone his whole neighborhood loves and looks up to. This is an enjoyable, entertaining movie but also makes you reevaluate your life and priorities. Moving and inspiring and worth seeing again and again!

    You'll have to take this with you.

    Amazing story following the life of a man, Anthony P. Kirby, who thinks he's found all that's most important in life. He makes a big deal and will be a very wealthy man, but on that same day, his son, Tony (James Stewart), decides to leave him. Tony has been dating his secretary, Alice Sycamore. He meets her rather strange family--her mother writes plays, her father makes fireworks, the milkman lives with them, her sister dances, a Mr. Poppins just joined the group. Everyone does what he likes most. Grandpa (Lionel Barrymore) binds the whole group together. Through a series of mistakes and mishaps, there develops a change in Anthony Kirby, as he realizes that friends are what matter most, 'cause that's all that you can take with you in the end.
