Roll with laughter
23 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was very funny if you look into it's humor. I give this a 10 for excellent because it sure made me roll with laughter. You can also watch it because it is now a public domain film. The story starts out with Tony Paige who used to be a truck driver. Now he is America's heartthrob singer also known as "America's Boyfriend". He meets a girl named June Delaney while he was trying to escape from screaming female fans. She helps him escape but the fans still clawed their way to him. Days later his agent comes to place an insurance policy on Tony, in case he ever gets married. It just so happens that Ms. Delaney works at this insurance place. They test Tony out to see if he falls for woman easily, but as soon as he sees June, his heart beats faster. June figures out that Tony only like girls who doesn't fall for his image easily so she tricks him into falling in love with her. He does and she falls for him also. He finds out it was all a con and decides to marry a Swedish actress. She stages a kidnapping to get him back, but that turns out badly and she really does get kidnapped. He goes after her and rescues her and in the meantime they got married to buy some time to get away from the bad guys. The police comes, they stay married and become known as the "American Singing Sweethearts". Everyone lives happily ever after.
