    You Can't Take It with You

    ★★★½

    Frank Capra made a lot of great films and YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU would be his second to win the Best Picture Oscar. I must admit that this is probably my least favorite "classic" Capra movie but that's not to say it isn't a worthwhile film because it certainly is.
