New York bandleader Terry Rooney (James Cagney) is offered a movie contract so he packs up and heads off to Hollywood. Once there, Rooney sets out to do things his own way and resists the trappings of "star treatment". Taking this as a sign of arrogance, the studio head tells the staff to keep the success of Rooney's first film from him to prevent an increase in his attitude. Meanwhile, after finishing his first film, Rooney heads off on a South Seas honeymoon and returns to find him a sensation which causes comedic results.

The Tomatometer measures the percentage of Approved Tomatometer Critics who recommend a certain movie --
or the number of good reviews divided by the total number of reviews.
A good review is denoted by a FRESH tomato.

In order for a movie to receive an overall rating of FRESH on Rotten Tomatoes, the reading on the Tomatometer for that movie must be at
