Be a man!

Once you get over the extremely weak premise of this movie -- that Earl Rodney can't tell his parents that he is married to Dorothy Devore as they have chosen another bride for him, so he comes home with Dorothy disguised as a man -- this movie is played out with charm and good humor. Of course it all ends with the parents saying "Why didn't you tell us!", but had that been done in the first place, there would have been no movie, would there?
