Poor Andy, all he wants to do is get to town and continue to woo his girl and ask her hand in marriage. Andrew "Andy" Hardy met his sweetheart Kay Wilson in college, but has since served in the military and is now being discharged. Getting back to Kay may be the hardest thing of them all to accomplish. He arrives in town alright, but things start to go awry from there. Question is, will he succeed? Written by
The worst out of all the Andy Hardy movies! Not even the usually exceptional Rooney can save this one...
The problem with this Andy Hardy movie is that Andy is no longer in High School and has just arrived home from the war. The plot about Andy wanting to marry some girl is contrived, as are the dancing sequences. Mickey seems to be just going through the numbers, and the other performances are nothing to see the film for. There are a few funny sequences, and all the Hardy clichés are in place, from the man to man talk, and Mickey coming to his senses after the talking to with The Judge. The film feels flat without Ann Rutherford or Judy Garland in it, and the girls in it instead are simply there to elicit a few cheap laughs. Mickey Rooney certainly gives the script his best effort, but not even he can save it. It feels like MGM stopped caring about the quality of the script and just about the Hardy name. This is a cheap cash in on the usually outstanding Hardy series and cheapens their memory! The worst of all the Andy Hardy movies!
