A Real Letdown
Miss Polly (1941)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Rather flat comedy has Zasu Pitts playing the title character, a free spirited woman in a very conservative town, which is being ruined by a woman who demands that everyone live the type of lifestyle she sees fit. This here leads to a town where everyone is expecting to follow her "rules but Miss Polly has plans of her own. MISS POLLY could have made for a very funny movie but sadly it's really a complete disaster from start to finish and thankfully the thing only lasts 45-minutes or else it would probably be much worse. There are all sorts of problems with this thing but it really does seem that no one involved even tried to make something fresh or original and instead they just threw a bunch of scenes together without every attempting to make them better. We're really left with a movie that has very little going for it because everything is just so uneven and forced that you really do wonder what anyone was thinking. The old woman who demands that everyone follow her rules is so annoying that you can't help but hate her and really be turned off by her. This isn't good for a comedy that is supposed to be making you laugh. Instead of laughing you just grow extremely hot and frustrated by how annoying the character is. The actors give it their all and you can tell they're trying but it's all for nothing.
