Plays dated these days, though what now seems like a pitch straight down the middle probably seemed more like a screwball fifty-two years ago. [Blu-ray]
Audience Reviews for High Time
A Blake Edwards (Pink Panther) outrageous comedy and a scream! Now older Bing Crosby decides he wants to go to college. Watch out freshman! This is a Blake Edwards early film that is mostly hilarious... old fashioned style (of course).
Crosby, 51 years old, decides he wants to go to college and do it like anyone else. He does the dormitory scene, he attends gym, he takes part in all the crazy schemes of the kids.
The freshman year is enough of a triumph, but his second year means he has to endure being accepted by a fraternity house. He has to now earn their respect by being dressed as a woman in the big administrator's dance.
Well, you get the idea. One big challenge after another.
You can watch this with ANYONE. Imagine that? See it on www.hulu.com today.
