Storyline

J.Newport Bates is a single millionaire who finds it very difficult finding a girl who will love him, not just his money. He joins the navy hoping to hide his identity, and just be one of the boys. His lawyers tell him he must have a fellow with him, to keep a watch out for gold-diggers. He reluctantly agrees and Phil also joins the navy. One night on leave, he meets a beautiful cigarette girl named Teddy, at a nightclub. She knows who he is and strings him along. Meanwhile Teddy runs into old flame Phil and the fickle girl soon drops Bates. Heartbroken, and about to give up on women entirely, Bates meets Sue the nightclub singer. She is a nice girl who's father is a banker, the two discover they have much in common and fall in love. Written by Pamela Short

A pleasant comedy that is consistently underrated by critics
27 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

"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.
