Nice songs, great cast, too many plots
11 June 2000 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

British star Pat Kirkwood is a delight in her only Hollywood film. A simple plot is diluted by sticking in opportunities for a half dozen other talents to do bits which are then diminished by cutting away to others chatting! Cugat and Marina Koshetz are wasted. Ms. Kirkwood says that on the first day of shooting, Van Johnson greeted her congenially and told her, "This picture is going to be a real stinker, so we might as well have a few laughs and forget it." Actually, the film is rather fun if you accept it as a light-weight, and Kirkwood's bouncy song "Love on a Greyhound Bus" is worth the price of admission. (Singer-dancer Van Johnson neither sings nor dances!)
