Not terrible but not great Joe E. Brown comedy about an astrology-obsessed boxer who lets "the stars" dictate every decision he makes. I'm not the biggest Joe E. Brown fan but this is one of his more tolerable efforts. The movie starts with an animated sequences involving the zodiac symbols. It's very cute and was probably the highlight of the film for me. From there it becomes a live action film; a comedy that is never overly funny but is pleasant and harmless enough. Obviously Brown fans will enjoy it more than I did. I freely admit he's not one of my favorites. Still I thought it was a watchable movie. I didn't laugh a lot but it kept my attention.
