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.
