Storyline

It's Fibber and Molly's 20th anniversary and they want to throw a big party. But when everyone declines their invitation, they decide to go on a second honeymoon instead. After one night at the broken down Ramble Inn, where they spent their first honeymoon, they decide to go across the lake to a swanky (and expensive) lodge, where they bump into their old friends Edgar Bergan, Charlie McCarthy, Gildersleeve, and Mrs. Uppington, so the party is on again. The only problem is, how will Fibber pay for all of this? Written by fibbermac

Trivia

Fibber's comment about "the local 400" refers to the supposed social elite of New York City in the late 19th century. The term was coined by Ward McAllister, based on the number of people that supposedly could fit in the ballroom of Mrs William Backhouse Astor. See more »

here we go again, and I'm glad.
30 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At my age (er, low 80s) this movie is particularly meaningful, reminding us of the fun we had btv (before television) as our imaginations and spirit of fun were fed with the likes of the stars of this movie, all radio folk (all NBC).

I was 14 when I hied my tail to the 43rd Street Theater, a small movie house in my neighborhood that specialized in 'B' fare. I loved it.

"Here We Go Again" was pure (in more ways than one) fun as it brought our radio favorites to the screen.

The musical portions were most enjoyable and the characters were a delight.

Fibber and Molly were lovable and fun, Bergen and company were delightful, as was Hal Peary as Gildy (later replace by Willard Waterman (?) who looked and sounded like Peary. The lesser known characters, such as Mabel Randolph as uppity Mrs. Uppington - all of them, were wonderful.

Musically, Ginny Simms was one of the best singers of the '40s, and Ray Noble and his band were enjoyable (not enough of them). On Bergen's radio show the Brit was the butt of McCarthyism. (Charlie not Joe, although both were dummies).

I would have loved to hear their between scenes conversations.

One reviewer, psewizzrp-1, or something like that, reviewed this movie as if it was a Hitchcock thriller in need of analyzing.

He needs analyzing. He spelled 'tires' - 'tyres' -- 'whining' came out as 'whinging' (???}. And story came out as 'storey'.

If he were to review a movie about cats, he would probably refer to them as kats.

Before your next negative criticism, bub, bring your second grade spelling book with you.

Anyway, most of the critics enjoyed this fluffy movie. For me, it was a delightful trip down memory lane.
