Storyline

The newly rich Mrs. Culpepper, eager to make an impression in high society, has planned a big dinner party. Her husband is less than enthusiastic, and she herself has much to learn about society ways. But her worst problem is that the two special waiters whom she has hired turn out to be clumsy and inexperienced bumblers. Written by Snow Leopard

Trivia

This entire movie was re-worked into a smaller timescale eleven years later in the first part of A Chump at Oxford (1940), with Stan & Ollie posing as maid & butler. Also, Anita Garvin re-prised her role in that movie as the host, and adopted the name "Mrs. Vandervere" as her character name. This is the real-life name of one of the party guests seen in THIS movie. See more »

From Soup to Nuts
4 June 2009 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

As others have commented, this isn't one of the boys best, but it is probably on a par (if not better) than anything they had done individually up to that point in their careers. The set-up is simple: Stan and Ollie are a pair of hapless (what else?) waiters employed to serve food at a swank dinner party. Of course chaos ensues as Ollie repeatedly falls head first into a gigantic cake after slipping on a banana skin, and Stan takes the instruction to serve the salad without dressing literally. Some of the gags are a little repetitive, but there's enough quality here to see why Hal Roach decided to keep the boys together. The film was pretty much remade (together with elements from Another Fine Mess) to provide an extended prologue to the European version of 1939's A Chump at Oxford.
