Give this "B" movie an "F."
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title "Sweetheart of the Campus" refers to the Ruby Keeler character -- and this movie might have been better if it had focused solely on Ruby, who looks great and taps up a storm.

Instead, we see way more of Ozzie and Harriet, and neither lights up the screen. Harriet simply doesn't have much of a voice, and Ozzie has neither voice nor personality.

If the entertainment had been more entertaining, you might not care so much about the nonsensical plot.

So watch this one only if you'll take a "swing music" film any way you can get it.
