Steve D There is just not enough plot here. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Audience Member It's Bogart in a musical comedy, I think that about says it all. What kind of drugs was Jack Warner on when he thought this movie would be a good idea? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A silly little dumb picture that features Bogie, yes, but overall is entertaining only for the comedy that comes from Frank McHugh. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
