This movie contains some incredibly racist lines. It was obviously aimed at southern belief system. I wouldn't let my kids watch it. Lynn Bari makes remarks about Louise Beavers making a cake with her "lilly white hands". Louise Beavers basically says she can't read. Then during the actual party scene Don Ameche sings in a pseudo black voice.
On the other side the movie does have some very fun scenes but some of the lines are not funny and unnecessary to the plot of the movie.
The clothing in this movie is fabulous. Lyn Bari's outfits are quite fashionable. I don't think she ever looked better in a movie.
Henry Fonda, Don Ameche and Everett Horton play their usual excellent comedic roles. Good for a quick laugh.
