Goofs

When Janie and her boyfriend appear on the cover of Life magazine in mid-smooch, her family has to skim contents before understanding why she is the cover girl (a feature on teenage make-out "blanket parties"). In reality, Life covers of this era always contained a few words of copy to explain nature of story depicted. See more »

cute little movie
29 March 2003 | by (Costa Mesa, CA) – See all my reviews

Janie is a cute little piece of fluff with a few good laughs, but I must say the patriotic stance it takes really killed the fantasy. This sort of WWII down-with-Hitler, hurray-for-the-military talk was common at the time, I realize, but Janie's excuse for her big party, not for fun but for the well being of the army and navy, and the nation at large, just added an extra "message" layer that wasn't necessary to enjoy the movie. Other than that, it was fun to see all of Janie's boy-hungry girlfriends yelling "jeepers" and "golly" all over the place. I must say the musical number took me aback at first, but it surprised me how enjoyable it was. If only everyone could sing in perfect harmony at house parties...
