Storyline

A crusading D.A. orders the police to shut down a South Seas themed girlie show and arrest its participants. The lead dancer eludes jail time when her attorney persuades the judge that she has a (fictitious) elderly mother to take care of. The attorney then scours the local senior homes for a suitably sweet maternal type to fit the bill. At the same time, the dancer seeks her revenge by seducing the D.A.'s ambitious but naive son. But her newly acquired mama eventually exudes some influence on the girl. Written by goblinhairedguy

Shakespearean. No, I'm serious.
19 December 2009 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This is sort of a Shakespearean comedy, in that it sends the heroine off on a masquerade, presents her with a dilemma of love and morality, and abounds with subplots featuring minor characters who, although sketchily drawn, are more interesting than the lead characters. I'd like to mention bandleader and trumpeter Johnny "Scat" Davis, who imitates Louis Armstrong (I'm not sure if it's supposed to be understood as an homage or if it's just an overwhelming influence) but comes up with one or two surprise licks of his own. I admit that unlike another commenter, I did not see how the plot was going to end up. When the fellow whom the female lead sets out to bamboozle turned out to be someone she could find fairly likable, I figured the rest is a slam-dunk, but it doesn't work out quite that way.
