Has a pretty decent storyline and also brims with good humor. [Full review in Spanish]

A speedy and witty script makes even Dick Powell bearable.

It's a fresh and lively picture, and will probably start a whole new train of ideas in Hollywood. In fact, it won't, surprise us now if they make a picture showing Shirley Temple running for the United States Senate.

Film mixes delightful political satire with exuberant musical numbers.
