Cute & Funny
9 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a great cast - and every character in the film is likable. Cute story surrounding college jocks and their girlfriends. Quite a bit of comedy that kept me giggling throughout the film. It's even better than I imagined it would be.

Creighton Chaney's last role under his real name. He plays a typical jock in this one - worried more about his sport than his girl until she gets upset about it and ends up with his best friend Bobby Barnes' (Arthur Lake). Ironically his best friend Bobby's girlfriend just got upset with him and ends up with Dan. Basically Bobby and Gwen are a couple, Dan and Mary are a couple because the ladies get upset. There is a switch in men (trying to create jealousy to win back the guys they are in-love with). It all gets straightened out in the end but the way everything happens is quite comical.

I must mention Sterling Holloway as Spec Early... what a fun character he is. Spec ends up with Kittens (Jeanie Roberts) and it's unclear if he really wants to be with her or not in the very end. LOL.

Overall a really fun film - lighthearted, romantic comedy that I enjoyed watching.
