Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
May 14th, 2007

Sweet Vacation Movie

A gal from the Bronx (Ginger Rogers) goes on a two week vacation to a camp for young singletons and meets a waiter fresh out of law school (Douglas Fairbanks Jr). They, of course, fall madly in love despite the travails they must cope with.

Yes, it has been done before, but this was one of the first camp love stories. The supporting cast are just as good as they can get from a very young Lucille Ball as the drama queen Screwball to Eve Arden as the dorky Henrietta to Red Skelton as the camp social director. They save the film from being flat and keep it moving along nicely.

Rogers has a face that was made for the screen, because of her films with Fred Astaire people tend to forget that she was a real actress for years beforehand and this movie shows that she can tackle a scene and make it her own even with a big time movie star like Fairbanks Jr.

It isn't a really original film, but it is a fun little treat and easy to watch at barely over an hour.
