Press notes for You Can't Take It With You read: "Meet the Sycamore family, a zany bunch of free-spirited artists and oddball entrepreneurs. When daughter Alice announces her new boyfriend's rich, conservative parents are coming to dinner, Alice's family agrees to act 'normal.' But when the prospective in-laws show up on the wrong night...all bets are off."
