Like stevedtx of Nevada, I was also very disappointed in this movie. Considering the talent involved, from the actors (particularly Nat Pendleton, one of my favorites), to the director and writers, I was predisposed to like it. And although I should have known better, I, too, believed the Maltin review. Some of the worst movies I have ever seen have been given 3 or 4 star ratings in that guide.
There's a good reason why Colbert and Stewart weren't paired again in a movie...no chemistry whatsoever, at least none that I could detect. And where were the laughs? I cringed when Stewart was in blackface and spoke with an "Alabama" accent.
Try watching Midnight, or The Palm Beach Story for Miss Colbert at her comedic best.
