Maybe It's Love (1930)

** (out of 4)

Joan Bennett plays a woman who's father is president at a local university and about to be fired unless the football team can bring a trophy home. With nothing to lose, the girl goes out and tries to get the best team possible. This comedy is best remembered for featuring eleven of the 1928 and 1929 All-American football players but they add very little laughs in this dry comedy. Joe E. Brown plays a supporting part and gets the best laughs during one scene where he mistakes a bear for a cow. Bennett isn't very strong in the film and the movie suffers from her non-comic performance, which all leads to a predictable ending.
