forgettable comedy/mystery
13 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After watching the surprisingly enjoyable "The Adventures of Kitty O'Day" I hunted down the movie it was a sequel to, "Detective Kitty O'Day." While I thought the first movie was pretty funny, this one seemed much weaker. It surprises me that this movie generated a sequel (and that the second, better movie ended the series).

I won't say this movie is dumber than the other one; they're both pretty dumb. And I wouldn't say Jean Parker was any less charming in this one; she's still fun and lively as she blithely goes from one disaster to the next. But it's just not as funny a movie, and even at an hour long it felt like it dragged.
