Perfect from start to finish...

Comedy of a kind that doesn't get made any more (probably due to a lack of actors who can pull off this sort of thing).

Charming, delightful comedy with pros all around - especially Deanna and Charles Laughton. Bob Cummings is just right with his masterful light comedy touch. Walter Catlett is as wonderfully befuddled as ever.

AS WITH ALL OF DEANNA DURBIN FILS, THIS IS ANOTHER WONDERFUL MOVIE SIMPLY DUE TO HAVING DEANNA IN THE FILM, HER ACTING AND HER SINGING AS ALWAYS IS STUNNING, THE BEAUTIFUL DEANNA ALWAYS MADE WONDERFUL FILMS EVEN WHEN DUE TO NO FAULT OF HER OWN, THE SCRIPTS WERE SOMEWHAT LACK LUSTRE. IF YOU HAVE NEVER WATCHED A DEANNA DURBIN FILM I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO, SIMPLY BECAUSE DEANNA ALWAYS SPARKLES IN WHICHEVER ROLE SHE PLAYS AND MAKES YOU SMILE...

Lovely romantic comedy

You know...I just watched this film for the first time and I loved it. Deanna Durbin and Robert Cummings are just great together. And, Charles Laughton gives the film an extra "boost" that makes it even better. This is a wonderful film that all of you guys need to see...

Wow was I surprised by this movie. I had never heard of it and watched it only on a fluck. Who has ever heard of Deanna Durbin? (well I never did.) Maybe that's why this movie is such a secret. But this stands up there with the best of the 30's and 40's screw ball comedies and is much better than other more well known ones like Philadelphia Story. The acting is great and the situations truly funny. It had me laughing from the gut more than once. It's not so different from the norm as to be a revelation, but does what it does exceedingly well. For those who like screw ball comedies I highly recommend this movie.

The only quibble I have with this film is that it sometimes almost slows to a halt to accommodate Laughton's character. Not that it isn't nice to have a break- but the break is too long. Other than that it's all fun and games in this Comedy. Cummings and Laughton are really good with the faces. I especially like the ending.

I love this one to pieces. Charles Laughton is hysterical as the old guy who doesn't die after all! And it wouldn't be a Deanna Durbin film without her beautiful singing.

A romantic comedy that every romantic comedy seeks to copy, but without luck as the original surpasses the fakes.

NO, NO, NO... and NO.
You couldn't be more wrong.

I believe the beginning had something to do with the Easter Bunny...

Or was it the Bogey Man?...

Either way, I remember there was some kind of bullshit involved.

Oh, wait...
Did you say Eve?
As in the one created out of Adam's rib?

Nevermind, then.

My favorite movie. Deanna Durbin is the custest thng and what a voice. Just loved Charles Laughton in this, he was great.

I love Deanna Durbin movies. Her movies were lighthearted frolics from the 1930's and 40's, calculated to snag you with her singing and cheerful demeanor. Her contagious joyfulness at singing leaps beyond the bounds of the camera and the years that have passed since this movie was made. '100 Men and a Girl' is another favourite of mine, and I love anything she did in her movies with the conductor Leopold Stokowski.

Little known, but very entertaining movie. A guy must find a girl to be his girlfriend and meet his father before he dies. But everything falls apart when his father lives!

I loved this movie! It is one of my all time favorites. I?ve seen it a million times and I still love watching it.

This movie is in my top 10; for me, it's the definition of a classic comedy.
