| Old-fashioned family values.
Intended as a hymn of praise for firm parents ruling the roost over their restless young adults on the brink of marriage and independence. But prevailing values have changed so much that probably few people nowadays will share the assumptions underlying this movie.

Parents who regard a 24 year old as too young to leave home, who won't allow an adult daughter a house key in case she stays out too late, and who expect the right of veto over their children's choice of marriage partners, might well be seen these days as doing a less than adequate job.

Like all moral crusaders, the generation who made this movie didn't realize that by turning the spotlight on their own narrow-minded value system they ran the risk of holding themselves up to ridicule rather than praise.
