Wonderful family fare in typical Blake Edward fashion., 5 September 1999
Author: louis biasiotta ( from Cleveland, Ohio

This is Bing Crosby at his comical best. A very over-the-hill millionaire decides to return to college and get his degree. He goes through all the usual trials and tribulations of the normal undergraduate, including initiations, all-night crash studying, and falling in love. Unfortunately, at his age, his "girl" happens to be one of the faculty, and dating or marrying faculty members is forbidden. Even his kids (he's widowed) frown on his decisions and add to the comedy and light drama. This is one of director Blake Edward's best. A wonderful family movie with something for everyone.
