Carlo and Gabriella want to get married. They have to overcome not only the opposition from their parents to a marriage at their young age but most importantly the instant dislike that their fathers take to each other. The many scenes where Totò, as the wealthy pastry magnate father of the bride, argues with Fabrizi, the middle-class public servant father of the groom, about who is going to pay for what, are priceless. It's an old-fashioned comedy, very Italian and very funny.
