Breezy little romp
18 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I have to disagree with the other reviewer--I found "Matrimony's Speed Limit" fun and breezy, even if the plot has been recycled a million times. What makes this version different (at least to me) is that the girl dupes her boyfriend into marriage by sending him a fake telegram, and then ends up giving him all of her own money. The ending is particularly charming, with the new husband realizing the deception and the girl wheedling him into compliance.
