Stan purloins his wife's secret bottle of liquor to have a wild night out at the Rainbow Club with Ollie. However Mrs Laurel has replaced the booze with a noxious mixture of cold tea, mustard power and other hot ingredients. This doesn't prevent the boys from getting tipsy on the contents! Written by

This film was simultaneously produced in a Spanish language version, La vida nocturna and a French language version, Une nuit extravagante with the actors speaking their own lines. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy read their lines from cue cards on which the appropriate language was printed phonetically. At the time of early talkies, dubbing was not yet practical. See more »
In the phone booth scene, when Hardy looks up Laurel's phone number the first time, he finds the number about one-inch into the directory. The second time he looks up the number, he goes much farther into the directory to locate the number. See more »

Oliver and Stan steal a bottle of booze from Stan`s wife and depart to a speak easy .
There that`s the plot . No seriously that`s the entire plot and it should have been awful but I spent most of the film with an amused grin on my face because it`s a show case for the infectious mirth making slapstick of the greatest comedy duo who ever lived or will ever live . There`s no reason why anyone should laugh at Stan passing a bottle to Oliver , or Stan putting an ice bucket on his head but I laughed out loud . Imagine if Jim Carrey and Chris Rock made a film where they bought some crack and decided to smoke it at an illegal drugs den ? It`s with a premise like that you really do appreciate the talents of Laurel and Hardy
