Frank Morgan plays a decent sort of man--but also one with his head hopelessly in the clouds. His family loves him in spite of his history of bad investments and they don't realize that hey are broke--as all their money has been invested and is tied up in yet another scheme. Before he can reveal to the family their financial straits, he dies. However, instead of going on to the hereafter, he decides to stick around--to be certain that things work out for his kids and wife now that he's dead. So, the guy leading him to the great beyond (his father, played by Keenan Wynn) is forced to wait....and wait....and wait. What happens next and how it all works out is just something you'll need to see for yourself.
Overall, this is a cute little film--part comedy, part sentimental family film. While the idea is a bit silly, it works well due to fine acting and direction. This isn't surprising, as almost every Frank Morgan film is worth seeing. Clever and VERY unique as well.
