It Comes Up Love was typical of teenaged songstress Gloria Jean's Universal vehicles: good songs and a strong cast squandered on a low-budget B effort. Jean and Mary Lou Harrington play Victoria and Constance, the precocious daughters of big-city businessman Tom Peabody (Ian Hunter). Long separated from his girls, who've been raised in the country, the widowed Peabody brings them to live with him in New York. Hopelessly out of step with her new "hep" friends, Victoria is introduced to the pleasures of swing music by brash Manhattanite Ricky (Donald O'Connor, teamed with Gloria Jean for the third time). Meanwhile, the girls try to expedite the romance between their father and pretty secretary Edo Ives (Louise Allbritton).
