Two sailors on leave, Stanley and Oliver meet two girls at a park and invite them to have a soda. Unfortunately, the boys have only enough money to split theirs, a point which Oliver can't seem to get across to his friend. That problem is solved when Stanley hits the jackpot on a slot machine. Now with enough money to hire a boat, they start a battle-royal with other boaters, with everybody eventually winding up in the lake. Written by

Laurel and Hardy's third sound film. Hal Roach had beat his distributor, MGM to sound conversion (MGM's parent Loew's Inc., had adopted a deliberate wait and see attitude toward the technology, fearing the huge conversion costs to it's far flung theatrical empire). The popular Hal Roach shorts became a cost effective supplement to MGM's 1929 release schedule. See more »

A classic Laurel and Hardy short subject with Oliver being the gentlemen and ordering sodas for the girls, expecting Stan to refuse in order that the budget can be stretched effectively. The definitive scene in the film is when Ollie says: 'Soda, soda, soda.'
