Keep It In The Family
Karen Sayers and Alex Macdonald, fed up with the disorganized grime of student ghetto living, decide they are ready for their own apartment. Denied financial assistance by their parents, the two devise an ingenious plan for revenge. Karen lands a job as Roy Macdonald’s private secretary. She is an instant hit with her boss, and a few knee-pats later the two land in Room 2326 of a downtown hotel.
Incensed by the news that in this latest affair, Roy is robbing the cradle, his wife Estelle, files for divorce. Roy soon tries to cool his relationship with Karen only to find that she is pregnant. Roy gulps and agrees to marriage. However, he is too exhausted by her rugged schedule of tennis, golf, swimming and jogging to absorb the good news that her condition was a false alarm. The wedding plans proceed smoothly until Roy brings Alex to the Sayers’ house and Celia realizes that her ex-gardener is her future son-in-law’s son! She confesses all to Roy in his office and then drives off at top speed, oblivious to the fact that the world’s most accident-prone policeman is following in hot pursuit.
Following a hilarious car chase that would rival the Keystone Cops, Roy and Celia confess their love for each other.
The wedding proceeds as scheduled, but bedlam breaks out before the minister can pronounce anyone man and wife. In the true tradition of romantic farce, however, the final scene resolves all dilemmas. Alex is joyfully reunited with Karen and his father rides off into the sunset with her mother. Even Karen’s father manages to find consolation — with a delectable blonde.
