Some amusing lines and repartee but the coppers are so stupid and incompetent that they are positively dangerous. I fear for the city’s residents when a ditsy coterie of debutantes aren’t there to break all kinds of laws and save the day. A lot of actions on everyone’s part from the cops, to Miss Manton, to the suspects made no sense. I know this is supposed to be a classic screwball comedy but I thought it was just silly. Maybe I wasn’t in the right mood: tolerant.
