Having Wonderful Time Reviews:

Ginger Rogers is Thelma, a secretary seeking rest and relaxation at a Catskill resort in "Having Unbelievable Time," also starring Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Lee Bowman, Eve Arden, Jack Carson, Lucille Ball and Michael (Red) Skelton. Uptight Rogers arrives at the resort and gets off on the wrong foot with Chick, a law student working as a waiter (Fairbanks). Eventually they explore they really like every other, but when Thelma expects a proposal from Chick, she gets a proposition instead and blows her stack. On the rebound, she picks up with quick Buzzy (Bowman), who's been staked out by Miriam (Ball). Complications arise."Having Unbelievable Time" is light entertainment that has nothing unique about it except its talented young cast. Rogers is fine as the more serious, less flirtatious girl in a group of love-mad girls. Fairbanks is fantastic, using a fully various persona from another movies – he sports an American accent and comes across as a brusque handsome hunk rather than a British gentleman. Eve Arden's Fresh York accent is over the top but she's funny as a resort guest, and comedy and slapstick are provided by cute Lucille Ball and Red Skelton, who gets to do a couple of comedy routines.All in all nice fun from RKO and recommended.


The original film script was about a Jewish woman on vacation in the Catskills. They place Ginger Rodgers in it and changed it around a bit. This is a pretty and funny movie. Nothing major, just a great tiny film about a working woman away for some R&R and ending up falling in love. Her love interest is Douglas Fairbanks Jr, who is a babe, and very funny in his own right. They both meet at camp and immediately dislike one another. He is working there as a waiter/camp counselor/gigolo (see Patrick Swayze's part in Dirty Dancing) to earn cash to pay for school. From the first moment they meet, you can say that even through all the fighting and cutdowns they really like one another. Neither of them has the courage to tell how they really feel to the other. Of course finally they do and it all happens naturally. You trust this film and the characters in it. To me that means a nice movie. Thank goodness I taped it off AMC. This film contains alot of talents, Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, Eve Arden, Jack Carson, to contain a few. You can't receive alot of Ginger's non-musical movies on VHS or DVD. This ticks me off people.PS...If you like to see more of Ginger Rodgers non-musical greats, check out Tom, Dick and Harry, Kitty Foyle, and the classic Scene Door.


A cavalcade of stars - Ginger Rogers, Lucille Ball, Eve Arden (all together in Scene Door) This has Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Jack Carson, Donald Meek, Alan Lane (voice of Mr. Ed), Red Skelton, Grady Sutton (made all those W.C. Fields movies). As others have noted, film lost a lot in translation from the original play, which would be politically incorrect these days. This present has Ginger Rogers in the same formula plot from the Fred Astaire movies, where man meets girl, woman acts spoiled and insulted, and man spends remainder of film trying to create it up to girl. Unfortunately, the script and interaction between actors just isn't up to the par of those Fred Astair films, but it IS interesting to see all those actors in their early years.
