      Audience Member Really good one right here and quite funny at times. Yes I recommend it. James Welch, Anderson, Arkansas April 17, 2023. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/17/23 Full Review steve d Doris Day is not a good enough actress to pull it off. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a 2 hour family film which didn't do well at the box office. It was rerun on TV for decades and it's well acted and well liked by people in general. Of course, Doris Day looks great and gives it her all as best she can with the script. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member 130825: Light, some humour and a little action. Disney like. Found Day's physique a little distracting, yes I said that, but if you watch the movie you'll know what I mean. Actually found I enjoyed the story of how Josie obtained independence, regained custody of her son and overcame the primarily male resistance she faced. Loved her devotion to her son. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I really ike this movie, it's fun. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I barely remember this, but it wasn't good enough to re-watch. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews
