    The Jazz Age lives on in this light, romantic spoof of 1920s musical comedy. The setting is-where else? The French Riviera. Polly, an English heiress attending Mme. Dubonnet's Finishing School, falls in love with Tony, a delivery boy. Things get complicated with the unexpected arrival in Nice of Polly's parents and Lord and Lady Brockhurst-but not to worry, a happy ending is in store for all. With its catchy tunes, period dances (including the inevitable Charleston) and winning sense of humor, The Boyfriend is a sparkling, tongue-in-cheek 1920s romp.
