Ugh
10 January 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I hated this movie. A blonde Joan Crawford plays a girl whose father died so she wants to meet her estranged mother. Well, Moms is a trashy old broad living it up in Paris on some French guy's dime. So Joan comes to Paris and very quickly finds she likes her mother's lifestyle and friends. She gets into a drunk driving accident thanks to the douchebag her classy mom set her up with. Then stuffy Neil Hamilton shows up and helps pull the two of them from the wreck. This is all treated very lightly. Anyway, Joan and Neil start to date but Neil's parents don't approve of her friends. I could go on but it's all very tedious and who cares. This is a stinker. What an unlikable group of characters. Everybody dresses nicely and enunciates all their words ever so properly yet I couldn't help but need a bath after watching them! At least Joan looks nice. Avoid this unless you're an avid Crawford fan.
