When the traffic cop issues Hubby Harold a ticket, in part it reads "You are hereby notified to appear at Police Headquarters within twenty-four hours of the above date....", but there is no date or time or any other handwritten data on the ticket save for the policeman's signature, nor is there any designated space to write such information.

This is an unusual domestic comedy for Harold Lloyd. Instead of spending the movie trying to "get the girl," he marries her in the first few minutes and spends the next hour dealing with the trials of wedded bliss.
In a way, the feature can really be seen as a melding together of 3 shorts. In the first, Harold attempts to navigate his way home with multiple small packages & a very live turkey. In the second, Harold illustrates the pitfalls of taking the in-laws (including a monstrous mother-in-law) for a ride about town in the new family car. In the third segment, well - it's hilarious, but you'll need to see it for yourself...
Harold Lloyd is wonderful throughout. But then you expected that, didn't you?
