Morality play, preaching against alcohol and fast living.
23 February 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Local good-time gal and stuffy boyfriend fall in with a couple of rich daredevils out for a good time. The predictably unhappy developments portray the evils of alcohol, fast cars, fast women and generally straying from good old family values. This movie is more like a paid advertisement for the League of Temperance and Decency and has about as much dramatic depth. A quaint reminder of post-war attempts to turn the clock back to Victorian values, pretending that the old social order had not been changed forever by the turmoil of the war experience.
