All known copies in circulation are missing a 40-second segment from the Spike Jones production number, referring to "Eleanor" (Roosevelt). Please check your attic. After its theatrical run, the joke was soon outdated. See more »
A pleasant comedy that is consistently underrated by critics
"Bring on the Girls" is a light-hearted comedy of errors. Poor little rich boy Eddie Bracken is looking for a girl who'll love him for himself not his money. Veronica Lake is a gold-digging cigarette girl, and Sonny Tufts is the guy from her past. Despite some weak slapstick humor from time to time, there are some witty dialogues. Veronica Lake is able to rise above the material and has some nice one-liners and amusing moments. A good movie to curl up in front of on a rainy night or day when one wants a cheerful diversion. I enjoyed this movie.
