Despite being a Technicolor film, this picture contains process and insert shots which are in black-and-white. In particular, though Charles and Winifred are photographed in color on their buggy ride to the church, the background and the church exterior itself are in black-and-white. See more »

So-so lighthearted movie, if you like broad comedy
Have seen the movie on video only once and doubt I'd want to see it again. It's just too painfully farcical at times for my liking. As someone says, those freaky brothers are a bit much to see, that's why I wouldn't want to endure the movie again.
Bette Grable is always beautiful, no faulting there.
I rather felt Rudy Vallee got some rough treatment in this movie and didn't have not enough opportunity to shine with his usual suavity as in other films.
Glad I saw it once but that's about it. I really prefer any other Betty G. movies than this one, sorry to say. Most are super.
