    Jean's made better movies but her second to last film is a cute little trifle. She's full of snap, you'd never suspect her health was failing while this was being filmed.

    <i>"Don't you have any friends or family who can help you out?"<br/>"My friends are as broke as me, and my family live all the way over in Des Moines, Iowa. Have you ever heard of Des Moines, Iowa?"<br/>"No I can't say that I have."<br/>"Well that gives you a good idea about where it's located."</i><br/><br/>Comedic fluff has its moments. Rougish Robert Taylor was the Paul Newman of his time, while Jean Harlow mostly plays it straight but has a fun scene where she impersonates guests who will arrive at her dinner party, which is populated by some memorable oddballs (Mr. Travailian is a hoot.)

    An interesting romantic comedy, the story is good, and the actors are too, but it's not the best romantic comedy I've seen.
