Audience Reviews for If I Had My Way

Bing sings beautifully of course but the script is weak. Your enjoyment of Gloria Jean will depend on your taste for a light soprano voice but she's no Deanna Durbin. El Brendel's character is supposed to be goofily charming but he comes across as idiotic.

This movie combines stories from two other Crosby movies: Crosby having to take care of a kid like in East Side of Heaven, and Crosby having to put together a profitable restaurant like in Double or Nothing. It's a predictable Crosby movie, but it's entertaining.
