(Review originally written at 30 November 2006)

For a '30's comedy this movie surely lacks laughs. The movie features very little comical moments and mostly relies on the comical situations instead. Problem is that the movie doesn't exactly feature many comical situations either.

The story is pretty weirdly connected and it mixes too many elements. The musical number feels out of place and the characters are not used to their full potential, such as Mrs. Chase and Mother-in-law, who should had been given something more interesting- and funny to do in the movie.

The movie is still sort of fun, due to its charming and gentle approach. It provides the movie with some amusing moments that are just not good or funny enough to leave a real lasting impression.

It's a comedy that still amuses, so I just really can't rate it lower than a 6 out of 10 because of that but I also can't exactly rate it any higher either.
