Considering its modest budget and lack of pretense, it's a pretty good little film
12 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a cute and watchable little film from MGM. Considering that it had none of the huge stars like many of its films, it is surprisingly fun and worth seeing--and I almost scored this a 7. Dennis Morgan, Thomas Mitchell and Priscilla Lane are the stars and while I wasn't surprised to hear Mitchell's excellent Irish accent, I was surprised that Morgan did the Scotish accent as well as he did.

The story itself is an interesting slice of life about retiring cop Mitchell. He didn't know he was about to lose his job and initially this throws him for a loop, as he loves his job--it is his life. And, he also blames Morgan for this because this young cop actually gets Mitchell's job! What happens next is something I'll leave up to you--I'd hate to spoil the movie. But, the big characters and the whole mood of the film is infectious--just turn off your brain and enjoy!
