This is one of those it's so silly it works films.  I was laughing out loud through most of it.

A movie like this could only have truly worked in the time that it was created.  There is just something too innocent for it to really have the same sort of punch were it to be done now for the first time.  (I do realize it's had it's fair share of remakes already)

what do i think i learned from this film?
Sometimes you have to believe in love at first sight, and sometimes you just have to follow the dogs.


  1. Bringing Up Baby is one of my very favorite classic films. I grew up watching it and then watched it again as an adult and still LOVED it. :-)

  2. Hannah M... It is a sweet movie. More modern films should try to capture the chemistry from this a bit more.
