Enjoyable Universal musical comedy
25 March 1999 | by ShotsySee all my reviews

What a surprise this film was! While not very original, it did leave this viewer with a good feeling. The cast is very good. Armetta steals the show in every scene he's in. Nice songs and musical score for that period. Give it a chance!
