When arriving for a family visit to share the happy news of your engagement, the last thing you want to encounter are loved ones who've gone completely bonkers. But that's exactly what theater critic Mortimer Brewster finds when he returns home. One uncle thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt at the Panama Canal, another uncle has been transformed by plastic surgery into a Boris Karloff-style monster and his spinster aunts have taken to poisoning lonely men and burying them in their basement. In this hilarious dark comedy, later made into a Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, poor Brewster has to juggle his pre-marriage jitters with family antics and meddling police. Learn More

When Marcy arrives and wants Chris to explain to her boyfriend, Rock, what happened between them and identifies the shoes as hers, Chris has to find a way to prove himself to Liz. Adding to the tension, Rock (who is an unlikely looking physical fitness trainer) keeps showing up at Chris's apartment. His plan is simply to make sure Chris stays away from Marcy...by beating him up. Things get more complicated as Marcy, who thinks Rock is the hottest, most exciting man she's ever known, uses romantic encounters in Chris' apartment to divert Rock's questions. Unaware of what his apartment is being used for, Chris accidentally ends up in bed with Marcy. When Liz arrives to get her briefcase, and Rock returns to find Chris with Marcy...things get even wilder. All of this and more make this comedy a wild romp and a hilarious look at what can happen with being Absolutely Honest.
