Audience Reviews for Love Nest

Nice older movie. I think I bought this one when I was going through a Marilyn Monroe phase (reading book about her life), but I never got around to watching it. Probably just as well - she is barely in it, and when she is, she is considerably overshadowed by June Haver.
This is really just a nice little film. Kind of reminded me of a less extreme "The Moneypit" as the couple here have bought a boarding house and there is nothing but problems with it. Among their lodgers is an old romantic scammer and Marilyn Monroe who plays an old army friend. Light story, I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would.

Minor but likable little comedy with an able cast. Marilyn, whose part is small acquits herself well and looks like a million bucks.

Not a Bad Black & White Film, pretty good acting, and good story line. Maryln Monroe wasn't the main star in this one. It was enjoyable, and fun. Its always cool to see the prices of things back in the day, Like 2 Big Cans of Tomatoes for 35 cents, and rent for 65 dollars, and a plumber charging $3.50 hr for labor. But hey whats to complain about this morning gas was $1.99. This is a Sunday Night Movie, its clean
