Storyline

Molly and Bee, sweet young 'working girls,' live in a cheap room over a New York grocery store. Molly's idol, wealthy Jack Cromwell, lives in a Long Island mansion but is markedly less happy, since his fiancée Jane won't discourage her other admirers. Fleeing in his car, Jack ends up in an urban block party where he meets you-know-who. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

(at around 1h) We see a piece of paper that reads "Wednesday, July 10th 1929", then a few minutes later we see an invitation to an affair that reads "Monday, July 12th 1929". Actually, the 10th did fall on Wednesday that year, but the 12th fell on the following Friday. See more »

Don't believe the bad press...
27 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

When I purchased this movie, I expected it to be a dud, from all the bad press it has received. But it is actually very funny, entertaining, and charming. I especially liked Bea's character, and the motorcycle chase at the end was hilarious. I also thought that Charles Farrell did an excellent job his Cape Cod accent fits this character perfectly. It's great!
