Ambitious Midwestern girl moves to New York to claim a cash prize for writing an original song, the contest is a sham and that is just the beginning of her troubles and eventual romance.
26 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a surprisingly funny Republic musical about a Midwestern girl's attempts to claim a cash prize for winning a songwriting competition. The only problem is that the contest is fixed and there is no cash prize. The band leader sponsoring the contest steals the song, alters the title and claims it as his composition. The plucky girl leaves for New York and manages to move into his unoccupied apartment by pretending to be his sister. She ends up meeting his songwriting partner played by Brad Taylor, who also lives in the next apartment. They hit it off and write beautiful music together never knowing they are next door neighbors. The script and direction are fun and the songs are nice. What elevates the whole thing is Jane Frazee's very funny performance as the determined prizewinner - her singing voice is lovely! The chemistry between Miss Frazee and Mr. Taylor is great and you gotta watch for the final scene where the two are bashing on the wall connecting their apartments unaware of who is on the other side.
