Pleasant, Enjoyable Romantic Comedy
This follow-up to the charming "Three Smart Girls" is almost as pleasant and enjoyable as the original. The story is similar to the first one in some respects, but with enough new ideas to keep it from becoming stale. Most of the cast is back, most importantly Deanna Durbin and Charles Winninger. Durbin's energy and charm make even the more implausible moments seem natural, and Winninger gets some even better moments as the befuddled but good-hearted father in "Three Smart Girls Grow Up" than he did in the first picture. Ernest Cossart also gets some good moments as Binns.

Durbin's character again gets a chance to try to straighten out some romantic mis-matches, and to show her musical talents along the way. It's a simple combination that can be quite enjoyable when handled well. There are not a lot of new ideas here, but it has the same good-natured, unpretentious atmosphere and sympathetic characters as its predecessor. It delivers just what it promises, and it makes for a very nice way to pass an hour and a half.
