The story [is] admirably developed. [Full review in Spanish]

The picture is a honey and Deanna is lovelier than ever and her singing just as sweet, if not sweeter.

April 8, 2020 | Full Review…

It's purposefully pleasant and bland.

Audience Reviews for It's a Date


Innocuous but who cares with a cast that includes Deanna Durbin, Kay Francis and Walter Pidgeon it's very enjoyable. Kay as was her standard is decked out in one knockout ensemble after another. Cecilia Loftus add a fun performance to the proceedings as Kay's maid and confidante.

Predictable romance comedy, but the comedy is pretty funny, so it's an okay movie.
