Typical, fast paced Warner Bros. FUN!
27 April 2002 | by (Wichita, KS) – See all my reviews



I usually like the movies that Warner Bros. put out in the 30's and I liked this little film. Dick Powell is supposedly the main character but to be honest he's not in the film much - Pat O'Brien and Lyle Talbot steal the show. Pat, as usual, is great in the role as the college coach and Ann Dvorak, a very under-rated actress, is wonderful in her small role as his poor wife, he is more into football than he is into her. ;-)Her beauty is really something to behold! Lyle Talbot though really impresses here, usually his roles were small and his talent was never used the way it could've/should've been, but he is wonderful as the loveable bonehead who is only good at one thing - FOOTBALL! Dick Powell was a bit miscast in my opinion as a footballer who is into chemistry although we do get to hear him sing, which is always nice.

Anyway - if you have some free time and this is on tv I advise you to check it out. It's a little entertaining bit o' fun!
