Can't Knock The Innocence, But Too Corny For Today
I am one of the biggest supporter of wholesome values even though I have some sick movies in my collection. The point I am trying to make is that these Andy Harvy movies are about as innocent and wholesome as they come, but I still find them too corny to watch. Judging by the amount of reviews here, most people agree.
Actually, I kept one in my collection ("Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever") but discarded the rest, including this. I did like the first 30 minutes but once "Andy" (Mickey Rooney) got involved with two girls - his regular girl "Polly Benedict" (Ann Rutherford) and her new friend "Sheila Brooks" (Esther Williams) is got stupid or should I say, sappy.
That first half hour was entertaining mainly because of the lingo. Many of the day's hip phrases were used and they were fun to hear. However, these romance angles keep popping up in the films and are so annoying and dumb I eventually lose interest.
