Books and Movies Reviews


All families are different.Each family has different values,like the two families in the two different plays, “I Remember Mama” by John Van Druten and “You Can’t Take It With You,” by Moss Hart and George S.Kaufman.Some viewpoints that each family has are the importance of their family,economic situations in their family, family values, and how the family treats outsiders that come into the home.
Every family has a different level of the importance of their family.Some families don’t care if their family is in touch with one another but others do and they take pride in loving and being with their family.The family in “I Remember Mama” puts a large amount of time in investing in their family’s importance.

scrubs the floor, saying “Very dirty floors.” Acting as if she was really the cleaning lady,
and she got past.She got to go see Dagmar.Mama wanted to see Dagmar so bad that
she lied.Another reason why they take importance in their family is making sure it was all
right for Trina to get married.Trina told Mamafirst about her engagement,she wanted
Mama’s opinion on the whole matter.So Mama told Trina that she had to ask Uncle
Chris, because he was the head of the family, and that she had to also tell her sisters Jenny
and Sigred.So Trina told Uncle Chris and he said “Well, then, get married.”Even though
he is busy, he makes the time to tell her that “I give you permission.”
Family is also important in the play “You can’t take it with you.”As like in “I
Remember Mama,” all the family member…
