Quotes

Paul Benton: And now, ladies and gentlemen, from high atop Beacon Hill, over looking the low rent district, we at the Sheer Luck hotel are proud to bring you the ear-splitting notes of popular singer Warren Palmer, as he asks the musical question:
[in a falsetto voice]
Paul Benton: "Where are you..."
Cynthia duLane: That's not funny.
Paul Benton: You know, you're right. It's much funnier when he does it.

A romantic comedy that is just fun to watch
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two of entertainment's best singers, Andy Williams and Robert Goulet, square off over the affections of Sandra Dee in this delightful film. This is NOT a musical, but some great songs are seamlessly woven into a comedy made even better by the enjoyable performance of Maurice Chevalier.

Williams and Goulet show their talent is not limited to singing with some pretty good acting. Today it seems most romantic comedies feature bedroom scenes, rough language and vulgarity, but you will find this movie to be just "feel good" entertainment.

If you watch this movie before you go to bed, don't be surprised if you wake up feeling good and humming "We're Almost There", or "I'd Rather be Rich".
