One of Toto's Better Films
18 October 2018 | by jrizzo-10924See all my reviews

I'm quite surprised that this movie doesn't have a better score. It's fun and silly with some good gags. It doesn't get annoying like some of the others. There are many fun misunderstood situations and it really seems as if it pushed the envelope in its day by having a lady doctor, which of course leads to many of the misunderstandings. I enjoy it and I watch it every once in a while. I would have given it a 7.5.
