A Date with Judy features a song called Strictly on the Corny Side, which might serve as the movie's theme song.

It's a bubbly old-fashioned romantic/comedy/musical.

Taylor is breathtakingly beautiful, but Miranda walks off with every scene she's in.

It's ridiculously old-fashioned, but it's also spectacular entertainment, with wonderful songs, a big heart, and plenty of laughs.

...a few good tunes are not enough to turn this musical comedy into anything more than lightweight escapist fluff.

Audience Reviews for A Date With Judy

Sweet comedy, a time capsule of teenhood in the movies in the 40's. Elizabeth Taylor is very young and very beautiful and Jane Powell is charming and pert. Carmen Miranda is a delight as always, her clothes are outlandish, take special note of her shoes and wonder how she could possibly walk in them! One quibble, the technicolor is unusually garish and at times the cast pratically glows orange.
