While at an amusement park, two men try to win the heart of a young lady. They compete with each other while attempting to find her runaway dog, and they race to ask her mother's permission to take her up in a hot air balloon.
After a long wait, a young doctor finally has a patient come to his office. She is a young woman whose father has brought her to be treated for sleep-walking, but the father becomes annoyed with the doctor, and takes his daughter away. Soon afterward, the young doctor shares in a drinking binge with another doctor who has built a still in his office. After a series of misadventures, the two of them wind up in the same hotel where the daughter and her father are staying, leading to some hazardous predicaments. Written by
Fast-paced fun which, as often with Harold Lloyd, features distinct - and proved - backdrops for his gags: first, the doctor's office (where the star, as a novice M.D., is forced to impersonate his own clients as a ruse to attract genuine ones!); then, the city streets after a drinking binge with his pal (capped by a pre-SAFETY LAST!  scene in which they fall foul of a policeman); next, the hotel lobby where the reception desk and an elevator become the 'targets' of Lloyd's drunken havoc; and, finally, the trademark 'thrill' sequence in which both the tipsy Lloyd and sleep-walking heroine Mildred Davis are seen walking perilously on the ledge of a tall building!
