Film #14 of my 2020 - Clearing Out My DVD Case Initiative.
Ouch. Mostly dreadful.
It's one-liner after another one-liner. And not even good ones. One groaner after another. Like a bad vaudeville act that never really gets going.
The plot is silly and paper-thin. A dad (Bob Hope) doesn't want his daughter (Tuesday Weld) dating a hipster hepcat (Frankie Avalon). So he tricks his daughter into a trip to Sweden to get her away from the dude. She, of course, falls for a Swedish dude who turns out to be a ladykiller and is much worse than the American guy. So the dad brings the American kid over to try to win his daughter back. In the meantime, the dad also falls in love with a Swedish lady.
Lah dee dah.
It's all very light and easy... but ultimately very empty. I wanted to like this generational comedy, but it just didn't work for me. Ah wells...
