Steve D Embarrassing for all involved. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Audience Member It seemed like an attempt for the studio to promote itself with people playing themselves. It came off as boring and didn't have enough of Doris Day. Seeing her singing on the telephone was the best scene of the whole movie! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member WB tries to bring back the 'all star patriotic musical' with mixed results Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Some great acts by cameo appearances of stars are the only thing saving this picture. The main plot bored me. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews
