Review by Kathy Hilton (posted on 20-Jun-2007)

I love this old movie, cause you can't beat movies like this one with Debbie Reynolds, and Tony Randall! This is a classic family feature that the whole family can watch without the bad language! Plus, the actress that played her mother also played in the 50's version of Parent Trap with Jodi Foster, Maureen O'Hara, Brian Keith as his housekeeper. I'd highly recommend this to anyone, cause of the storyline and the wonderful actors and actresses in it! Debbie played in the first Tammy movies, "Tammy and the Bachelor" which was another good one that is really hard to find--like "The Mating Game." There's all kinds of tender, sweet, romantic and funny moments in this movie and a real good ending! All I can say that it's an excellent movie worth watching over and over again! We never tire of movies like this one, or anyother these two are in! Just rent or buy a copy and watch it for yourself!
