The witty dialogue is decidedly more entertaining than the corny plot.
With its echoes of "Little Miss Marker", "Daddy Long Legs" and "Orphan Annie", this is a rather stilted plot on which to hang a lightweight comedy. Nonetheless, it makes for enjoyable enough entertainment, even if a trifle too predictable and over-long. Agreeable playing, competent direction and first-class production values help.
