It should have been much, much better...instead it made little sense and was tiresome
"Girl Trouble" is supposed to be a kooky romantic comedy. The trouble is that the kooky portions are annoying and the romance is anything but romantic! It's a shame, as I love films from Hollywood from this era...but i really found myself struggling to care about this one.
June Delaney (Joan Bennett) is a society woman who just found out she's broke. When a South American rubber magnet, Pedro Sullivan (Don Ameche) arrives, she thinks she can pretend to be a maid in order to regain her old lifestyle. So she poses as a maid and soon it all becomes very tedious...and tough to believe or care about.
In films apart from "The Wizard of Oz", Billie Burke plays rich scatterbrained women. Her range was absolutely nil. But this one was much more grating than others because she was so thoughtless. She was supposed to be funny...she wasn't. She was annoying.
As far as the romance goes, it just appeared out of no where near the end of the film. Neither showed any inclination towards the other--the next thing you know they are head over heels in love!
Overall, a failure...and for me to hate an older film, that's very unusual.
