Kate watches on in despair as the two friends try to one up one another. Between taking care of their four rascally sons (the youngest needs to be caged), dealing with a big move to the country from Manhattan, appeasing the small town theatre playhouse actors, and the sudden amorous attentions of the once wrathful Ms. Vaughn towards her husband, Kate has a hard time keeping Lawrence grounded. Fortunately, and perhaps a little too conveniently, Lawrence and Kate love each other madly and when Lawrence's conceit finally bites him back, he has the sense to realize where he went wrong.
With wonderful performances by the stars and their supporting cast including one of my favorite character actresses Patsy Kelly, Please Don’t Eat the Daisies is an entertaining and lighthearted film.
