Bachelors in a small Minnesota town, where unmarried men greatly outnumber unmarried women, decide to find wives by running an advertisement. They are surprised (but pleased) when hundreds of eager women descend upon the town. Written by
I really enjoyed this movie. While I do enjoy action and science fiction films, it's great to not see anything blown up for a change. I'm from a nearby state and the characters felt real to me. I remember the newspaper stories about the Herman bachelor festival and it was fun seeing a movie about it. In the fictionalized version several romances develop after the bifg weekend and most end happily. I enjoyed seeing small town people treated as intelligent and the mostly gentle humor. It's a good feel good movie; I'd like to get it on tape or DVD some time.
