Steve D GInger is good the script isn't and her character is insufferable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/04/23 Full Review Audience Member it's a hilarious movie , Cornel Wilder was that good looking in this movie. and yes i noticed that it felt like the previous version of "Runaway Bride". its worth watching :) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member interesting romantic fantasy Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet comedy that can best be described as daffy. Ginger hadn't yet slipped into her grand lady mode and is a dizzy delight with an amazing wardrobe, the wedding dress with shimmering halo is something to behold! Cornel was always an agile, agreeable comedian and matches well with Ginger. Spring Byington and especially Percy Waram are delightful as the exasperated parents of the indecisive Miss Rogers. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Well, this movie was ridiculous, but nonetheless delightful and thoroughly entertaining. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie it's so cute!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
