minor Busby Berkely, not shimmering but charming
22 December 2001 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

Busby didn't have the $$ to make any spectacular dance scenes, but the musical numbers are still quite good with some artful but floor-bound camera moves. Joan Leslie is lovely, playing an idiotic bimbo with such charm that we blame the script, not her, for her dumb moves. Which is basically the movie's major problem: the film's best gag, bubbles coming out of a character's mouth, is done to death, indicating a worse lack of intelligence on the part of its makers than the one they ascribe to the funny but obviously smarter-than-the-material Leslie.
