Andy is going to Wainwright College as did his father. He sees a pretty blonde on the train and he is alternately winked at or slapped every time he sees her. Andy is clueless. On the train Andy meets Kay and Dr. Standish who are both headed for Wainwright. Andy likes Kay, but Dr. Standish also seems to take an interest in her. Things are going well at College with Kay, but the blonde is nice one minute and ignores Andy the next. When Andy finds out that the blonde are identical twins, he tries to help them out with their father but gets caught at their rooming house after midnight.

Great Addition to Series
18 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Andy Hardy is at it again, and this film takes up right where the last one left off. Andy (Mickey Rooney) is on board a train heading toward Wainwright College, the place where his father (Lewis Stone) made a name for himself years before. Andy has sworn off girls to focus on his studies, that is until he learns that the school has gone co-ed. First he meets Kay (Bonita Granville), a beautiful girl whose maturity causes problems for Andy. Also, he meets a blonde who seems to hate him one moment and love him the next. This girl turns out to be two girls (Lee and Lyn Wilde), twins masquerading as one person. Besides problems with girls, Andy faces issues with an older man (Herbert Marshall) who is not who he seems to be. At home, Judge Hardy battles sickness and a new doctor (Keye Luke) while Mother Hardy (Fay Holden) misses her son.

This is a truly enjoyable film; nothing special happens, but it retains the upbeat attitude of the other films in the series. The cast is wonderful, though Rooney's personality seems to have waned a bit to show off the talents of the women in the cast, especially the twins. They're beautiful and funny, adding a welcome new dimension to the movie.

One strange part of the movie are the scenes with the doctor. He is a Chinese man, and everyone in the cast seems to think this is strange and frightening. However, Luke's character takes their stares well and proves himself to be an intelligent and clever member of the cast.
