BOBBY DARIN SHOULD STICK TO SINGING
7 July 2003 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

I found that the entire picture would have been quite slap stick without Emily Banks. It was she that kept the viewer from falling asleep. The script was horrible! The outcome of the movie was as predictable as the over and over riding the horsey scenes.
