Goofs

In the several instances where the bribery money is shown, it has the appearance of real money, mostly $50 and $100 bills, but when Tom Laughlin is counting it in the final sequence, it is obviously stage money. See more »

Cute and anachronistic comedy
28 December 2005 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I love this film. Jane Fonda is darling and irresistible and Tony Perkins is adorable. It is so blatantly 50's style sexist but great fun. Great supporting cast including "My Favorite Martian" guy and "Billy Jack". I just love Jane Fonda in this as well as in "Cat Ballou". She is sexy and oh so American girl cute. Unfortunately, it is not out on DVD yet, just VHS so I can't get it from netflix. I'm a sucker for Doris Day/ Rock Hudson movies and this is in that genre. In this movie, living in a trailer is celebrated and marriage is the goal for every girl, just like in a Jane Austen story. Warning: extremely sexy shower scene :), a far cry from the one in Psycho!
