Cute and funny
11 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an overlooked movie from Hollywood's Golden Age. A cute and funny movie about a newly wed couple, the husband, Dennis O'Keefe who has a guilty secret he feels he must keep from his new bride, who, by-the-way, is still attached to her Mother. Mable, the husband's ex-girlfriend, insists that the secret be out in the open, much to O'Keefe's dismay. They all end up spending a weekend together and the sparks and laughs fly. A real treat for fans of old movies. Gail Patrick is wonderful as Mable. Highly recommend this movies. It is available only in VHS, but hopefully in DVD soon. Charlotte Greenwood is great as the old maid hostess for the weekend. Enjoy!
