Not much in the way of plot..., 8 December 2016
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

About the only reason to see this film is if you are a die-hard June Allyson fan, as she plays the lead in this practically plot less musical. Ostensibly, the plot is about the men giving the women control of the city government for the day and June is the acting mayor. But absolutely nothing is done with this plot...nothing...well, apart from making women look bad when she demands a mirror in the office because ladies, apparently, MUST have this and aren't really serious about work. Instead of developing this, however, there's one song and a crazy song and dance number. In other words, they totally sacrificed plot in order to shove a lot of music into the picture. It's not terrible...but sure is lacking the qualities you need to make it worth seeking. Not terrible...but not very good either.
