An Under Rated Movie That DOESN'T Take Itself Seriously!
25 April 2008 | by fairy-ladySee all my reviews

Hope is wonderful in this movie. Yes I agree the plot is unrealistic but that is the beauty of this film. It is played for laughs and does not take itself seriously in any way. The movie is entertaining and fun. This movie shows Bob Hope gagging it up and having fun with a script that could have been better but still manages to make us laugh and entertains us. It is wonderful to see what NYC was like in 1964 when I was 7 years old! I do agree that one major flaw was the fact that no one would allow a baby to be handled in such a matter without contacting the authorities. The movie is predictable and that is part of its charm.
