I recently had the opportunity to see this film after about 30 years and I think I enjoyed it more this time! What a wonderful film! This should be on the list of 'must sees' for any Gary Copper fan. The talented Cooper was able to play anything from a western to the wonderful, good hearted Sam. This is a light hearted look at the consequences that can occur when you extend yourself once too often. I never laughed so much at the comical situations that good ol' Sam gets himself into. The dead pan Ann Sheridan was the perfect choice for Sam's wife. She was really an untapped source as an actress, very underrated! If you have the chance to see this delightful film, please do, you won't be sorry!

I love this movie, it has such a wonderful message! I first saw it while I was living in Kansas City; one of the local television stations broadcast it during the holidays. I taped it because I loved it so much. Unfortunately that tape didn't survive multiple moves, so I was glad to see that it was available on VHS. However, I think this version on VHS tape has a scene missing; I remember that in the version on television there was a scene half way through the movie where Chloe, Lu's maid plays football in the front yard with the rest of the family. It was hilarious and a lot of fun! The VHS version I bought didn't have that. I wonder if anyone knows what may have happened there. All in all, it is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I always have to see it around the holidays. I hope you all enjoy it.

What a let-down this film was. I can see why it was such a big flop when it was released. Leo McCarey was a great director and his two films prior to this, Going My Way and Bells of St. Mary&#39;s, are bona fide classics. Not to mention his great comedies from the 1930s. So the movie is competently filmed as it should be, but it&#39;s still terrible. It has two amazing lead actors (only one of which delivers here). But the story is the pits.<br/><br/>The plot is that Gary Cooper plays a family man who never says no to anyone. He will give the shirt off his back and let his family go hungry to help a complete stranger. Right off the bat we have a problem because there is no way possible I can see myself rooting for such a character with obviously skewed priorities. The writing is bad but the acting by Cooper isn&#39;t up to snuff either. We&#39;ve all seen Cooper play down-to-earth good and decent guys before. His performances are usually grounded in a likable persona that makes him relatable. Here, he plays a character who cares more about helping strangers than his own family! His poor wife, wonderfully played by Ann Sheridan, put up with more than any reasonable person would. It was so infuriating watching Cooper&#39;s character be such a doormat. The only person he seemed able to say no to was his wife! The film tries to reconcile it all in the end with some of the people Cooper has helped out paying him back. This completely belies the entire fractured point of the film. It&#39;s clear the writers didn&#39;t even believe in their own premise. The problem with Sam is not that he helps people who don&#39;t pay him back. The problem is that he puts the welfare of others over his own loved ones. Whatever happened to &quot;charity begins at home?&quot; Ugh this is such a frustrating film to watch. I couldn&#39;t help but wonder at the end about Sheridan&#39;s character&#39;s future. She will have a life of perpetual debt and unhappiness because of this man and probably die of a stroke at 40. Sam, meanwhile, will become homeless and probably starve to death because every time he&#39;s got a crumb of food he&#39;ll give it away due to his obvious mental illness.<br/><br/>When you get right down to it, this is a depressing movie. The romance is non-existent as there is no chemistry between the leads. This is partly due to Cooper&#39;s lackluster effort, I&#39;m sure. Plus it&#39;s really hard to root for a couple when you are actually hoping the wife divorces the worthless husband. There is no comedy here, either. There wasn&#39;t one funny moment in the whole film. I&#39;ll give it a 4 because of the competent production values and because of the star power involved, which I&#39;m sure will help some swallow this pill of a movie.
