Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 367 ratings.
This is a fun film through most of it, but plot developments get downright silly close to the end as otherwise competent adults begin behaving in absurd ways- even for a 40s comedy, spoiling the story climax, in my opinion.
Temple makes her first filmed singing performance as an adult (as far as I know), and it's quite a treat as her vocal talent proves to have matured greatly from her childhood films. Frank Tone makes a lively and dramatic performance as the US Consulate to the American embassy of Mexico, but his character is quite poorly designed and completely misses the mark, which is on the writers and director.
No Shirley Temple collection would be complete without this, but I should doubt it is likely to be a favorite for anyone.
