This movie is an extended fantasy in which a fatherless boy wishes for his mother to remarry a friendly, guyish plumber instead of the effete, disciplinarian piano teacher. There is a real disconnect here between the rigid 1950s social mores and gender stereotypes portrayed in the dialogue and the wild sets and musical numbers. Despite its pitch for placid normality, it is the wild side that steals the show. The result is a movie whose bizarreness trumps its banality.
