What is the movie You Can't Take It with You about?
Dominating the box office and winning director Frank Capra his third best director Academy Award in five years, as well as winning the best picture award, “You Can’t Take It With You” was an absolute success. This 1938 romantic comedy was adapted from a Pulitzer Prize winning play of the same name written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. It revolves around two completely different families – the extremely wealthy, extremely snobbish Kirbys and the eccentric lower class Sycamores. Anthony P. Kirby, a successful banker has just branched out into the ammunition industry and he is looking to knock his competitor out of business by buying an entire neighborhood surrounding his factory. One family refuses to sell the house, to the consternation of Kirby. Tony (James Stewart), Kirby’s son, proposes to Alice Sycamore (Jean Arthur), a stenographer in his father’s company, unbeknownst that she is from the family that refuses to sell the house. Alice is worried that Tony’s wealthy family won’t take a liking to her poor and fairly eccentric family, but she asks Tony to bring her parents over to meet the Sycamores. When the Kirbys show up on the wrong day, it sets off a chain of events that will put two families at odds and result in some high comedy.

“You Can't Take It with You” isn't my favorite Capra movie, but I just had to comment on it. This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I'm tired of the kind of comedies that come out these days that do nothing but try to shock you with gross out humor. “You Can't Take It with You” is a great comedy and best of all it's a clean movie.
Jimmy Stewart is great as always and Edward Arnold is brilliant as the stuck up, money crazed father. The screenplay is fantastic and Capra's direction is brilliant as always. If you are also tired of the lame gross out comedies that are coming out by the dozen and insulting your intelligence and you want to see a clean movie you can laugh at or if you're a fan of Frank Capra, than You Can't Take It With You is a must see.

What a movie! Full of life, joy, and the vivid differences between those determined to not take life too seriously and those who can do nothing but take life seriously and live life by artificial and pointless boundaries. This is a movie of such magnetic charm that today's movies that trawl in the quagmire of post-modern nihilism show even more the transparency of their aimless wandering.Lionel Barrymore caps off this utterly brilliant cast but I think in his own way Edward Arnold, the gruff, seemingly self-absorbed and money grubbing Mr. Anthony P. Kirby, is a kind of revelation in his role. You can see the transformation in his face as he realizes--finally--what a farce his life has been.
I may be overstating this film's effectiveness, but it may not be a stretch to say it can change someone's life if they watch and truly pay attention to its message.
