C'mon this is silly fun
27 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"'Starring Betty Hutton' is the clue to watch or not to watch, that is the question." This particular movie is even sillier than her usual stuff. But I had some fun...I even liked the songs and I did so appreciate her "Give It All" delivery. Admittingly I couldn't have a steady diet of her films but I liked this one.

As been stated in the summary she so wants to be a great actress..her publicity agent William Demarest (not Frawley) is really over the top and winds up getting her into dangerous situations. She gets mixed up with the mob, and all that fun stuff but never fear, Betty will prevail.

The huge weakness was pairing her with Victor Mature. I understand it was Paramount's call but still...there was no chemistry even tho' good old Betty tried her best but Victor looked like a fish out of water but being this movie was a bit of fluff it made no difference.

Bottom line...if you're at all a fan of Betty's sit back and watch and listen to her sing and then run and watch something really dark!
