This film is a joy from beginning to end! It's filled with many great comedic moments: Stewart getting drunk in the classroom, Roger's & Stewart's fiancee fighting in the garden (I read in Ginger's autobiography that she was wearing hockey shin guards when she was kicked!), when Ginger and her mother-in-law are dancing, and the latter's husband comes in (!).
The only "exasperating" part is Stewart's character's cowardice to tell his parents that he's married; but, without it, there wouldn't be any film!
The only Rogers film I personally like better than this film (and, only slightly) is "Bachelor Mother". But, SEE THIS!
