Forgettable, 19 November 2012
Author: richard-1787 (richard@berrong.fr) from United States

This is a perfectly likable, but also perfectly forgettable movie. Don Ameche had charm, and he shows that here. The Ritz Brothers were second-rate Three Stooges, but they're about as good as they ever got here. Binnie Barnes is nice to look at. The plot is forgettable, which wouldn't have been a problem if the songs had been any good, but they are all completely and instantly forgettable.

Still, to judge from the sets, Fox must have thought this movie had box office potential: it's not cheaply made.

If it's on and you have nothing better to do, it's a pleasant way to pass an hour.

It's not worth seeking out, though.
