Jane can protect me any day
15 March 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Haven't seen this film for years,unfortunately its not on sale in the UK,so i decided to buy a copy of it on ebay which was region 1.I had to change the region on my computer in order to play it,but it was well worth it.Its just as funny as i remember it.Bob hope was as funny as ever as the Harvard hopeful,he never lost his touch as the brave coward.Jane was as sexy as ever,and so tough the ultimate sex goddess,she really suited these films,together they were brilliant.Roy Rogers and Trigger fit in well to the films fun adding a bit extra,which was not in the first paleface.A very funny film which we don't make anymore,so please no remakes of this fine comedy.
