      Audience Member Sucked infected donkey balls! Whose idea was it to cast crooner Bing in a dramatic leading role? Bad script with a contrived happy ending. The only thing true-to-life about this story is that men always get screwed in custody battles. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Bing Crosby as an angry father, trying to keep custody of his kid. The role was perfect for him! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Heavy handed dramatics but good performances. Inger Stevens is subdued but acts as a strong calm center for all the over heated emotions swirling around her. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
