An amazing comedienne in a flimsy film, 9 March 2001
Author: David Hoffman from Virginia

Six-foot Charlotte Greenwood is brash, just on the edge of being irritating; but she is also likeable. Dominating the scenes with amazing energy, she leaps and strides and races through the film. Yet, the movie is hardly up to her vigor. The plot is quite flimsy and improbable with a scene at the beginning that seems totally out of place. The film is obviously a vehicle for Greenwood, showcasing her talents. Grant Withers is good in his role as a husband who doesn't wish to be too domesticated. It's interesting to note that the men work, apparently, but one never knows at what. The musical numbers are mediocre.
