| Well, the audience isn't having a wonderful time...
Poor city girl Teddy Shaw (Ginger Rogers) is desperate to leave New York City and go on vacation in the Catskills. However, her vacation proves more troublesome than she thought, as she falls in love with waiter Chick Kirkland (Douglas Fairbanks Jr).

Terribly dull comedy from RKO; I've never seen a better cast wasted in such a turgid film. Red Skelton makes his film debut doing two unfunny comedy sequences, while Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Eve Arden and Lucille Ball are wasted in their roles. Ginger does her best, while Jack Carson plays the secondary love interest yet again. There's a couple of good comedy scenes, mainly involving Lee Bowman.

And who though Douglas Fairbanks Jr looked like a waiter?
