See Star Spangled Girl and laugh your head off!
27 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie on DVD after seeing a Living In TV Land on tape that featured Davy Jones knowing that his song,"Girl", would be in this movie after reading the other comments on this film. (Personal note: I saw Jones on stage at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, FL , where he performed this song in The Real Live Brady Bunch which enacted the episode that had Marcia trying to get him to her prom.) Based on a Neil Simon play adapted by Arnold Margolin and Jim Parker, Star Spangled Girl comes through fast and furious with the wisecracks that makes us forgive the initial annoyingness of the lead characters played by Sandy Duncan, Tony Roberts, and especially Todd Susman in a role completely different from Officer Shifflet on Newhart. Jerry Paris' direction times everything with a sledgehammer that hits more than misses occasionally slowing down so we can take a breath. If you're a fan of all of the above players as well as composer Charles Fox, what are you waiting for? By all means, seek this one out! By the way, Susman would later be the voice of the Greyhound dog on TV and radio. In case anyone didn't notice, Duncan rides Greyhound buses in the movie.
