Rich John Roberts, Jr. gets reports that his son, Johnny, is falling for a gold digging blonde at college. So he enrolls as a freshman to try to steer Johnny towards the girl he'd like him to marry. He hits upon the idea to have the blonde believe he lost his business, by writing a letter instructing his partner to wire him that his business went broke. But he gives the letter to a school official who forgets to mail it. Written by Arthur Hausner <genart@volcano.net>

Too much singing, not enough plot
12 November 2009 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Unlike much of the other posters here, I really didn't enjoy the many musical numbers in this movie, and thought more acting and plot was needed. The first number on the train went on waaaaaay too long, I thought it would never end! I think I clocked it at around 8 minutes of silly, uninspiring singing. I would have liked to have seen some classroom scenes, a football game, or anything that positioned the action in a college. The sets were spectacular art-deco architecture and interior decorating, making me wonder if the movie had actually first been envisioned as a sophisticated Manhattann penthouse romp.

Not a terrible movie, but nothing much happens in my opinion.
