Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine The story is pleasantly enough told, but Mr. Lederer's performance is so good that he seems entitled to a more impressive picture. Jul 23, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Heartfelt and with a bit more on its mind than the average Ginger pick. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/11/23 Full Review Audience Member You can say the movie's very manipulative in trying to overtly appeal to the audiences' emotions, but I really fell for this movie. Everyone in it are just pleasant/decent people. Perhaps the movie could have used an extra scene or two to deepen Rogers and Lederer's romantic relationship, but I still really enjoyed this one. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Very strong romance. Francis Lederer gives a really excellent performance, and Ginger is impressive, as always. The final sequence is hilarious. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
