Close to my heart
2 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Apparently I must be the only one that loves this movie and everything about it. As a child I watched nothing but musicals and I had many favorites. They didn't all have to be perfect but each one was very special to me in their own unique way. "Skirts Ahoy" is one of my all time top favorites and I use to watch it over and over. I use to entertain everyone with my quotes and humorous reenactments of the musical scenes. "Skirts Ahoy" stood out to me as different from the rest and to me there was something very special about it. I think there is so much humor in this movie and a very real side of relationships and life lessons. This movie is very dear to my heart and I haven't seen it in so long. For everyone that dislikes this movie, please let me know if it is ever on TV and I will be happy as a clam to sit and enjoy every second of it while everyone else goes to bed ;)
