This movie is too funny! And too heartwarming! I can watch this movie over
and over and still laugh! And it is not slapstick! Just good ole wholesome
American comedy! My favorite! Three men, (well, two men and a teen) and a
French woman! What a combo!!
John Wayne is his usual macho self. That is always fun to watch. And
Granger is soooo good here! I have seen him in many things, but I think he
out-did himself here! He's too funny! And poor Fabian. He breaks my heart
with his love-sick adoration of Michelle! If you haven't seen this, you
rent it. You will be glad you did. And you WILL end up watching it again.
It's that type of movie.
