Steve D The same waste of time the rest is. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review Audience Member It was good because Mickey Rooney was always a comedy genius and a great talent but definitely the best "Andy Hardy" films were the ones with Judy Garland in it. For some reason the story was better and of course Judy was a genius and the biggest talent too so when the put Mickey and Judy together it was pure magic. At the end of the film though you see all the pictures of the previews Andy's girls including Lana Turner and Judy Garland. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I feel the Andy Hardy series one of the best from that time perios. This movie was very entertaining, highly enjoyable with some very memorable scenes, especially some of the dance scenes. Energetic, funny, touching and Mickey Rooney is terrific. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member good old fashioned humor Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I adore Mickey Rooney as Andy Hardy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice, funny movie. Obviously made in the 40s, but good! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
