Entertaining and Funny
22 January 2004 | by (ND, USA) – See all my reviews

I feel this movie is well done and if you like Bing Crosby or Jane Wyman you will enjoy watching this one. It is full of music, is entertaining, full of action, and funny. There are parts that will really make you laugh. I own a copy of this movie and would recommend it for anyone to watch. It can also be considered a family movie.
