This bears all the hallmarks of the MGM studio system.Although only 3 writers are credited it changes direction so often that it feels as if about 30 writers have had a hand.The comic premises are so laboured that you can see them coming at least one reel before they arise.If the plot is flagging well stick in an eccentric character or a well known plot device.We have for example the standard jail scene.Either the idea was copied from Bringing Up Baby or was done much better by the later.Although this film is only 70 minutes long it feels double that length and by the time it limps to its daft finale one can only sigh with relief.So if you are looking for a screwball comedy or any sort of comedy forget this.
