Goofs

During the opening credits, as the writing credits (second panel) are displayed, somebody wearing a hat ducked down and walked in front of the camera. (This may have been a common practice at the time.) But the person did not duck down far enough, and the top of the hat is just visible as it moves from left to right across the bottom edge of the frame. See more »

A Fun college comedy
21 March 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Marion Davies is a young woman who goes to college to chase Johnny Mack Brown, a student. Finding that he is women's basketball coach, she joins the team and becomes the teams star, but quits the team to avoid co-operating with Jane Winton, who is Johnny's current beau.

Many fun scenes, especially the students returning to campus in protest of the college's no auto policy. Marion Davies gets most of the screen time and does very well.
