Pretty much a bomb
10 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In his few years with Paramount, from 1929-1934, Maurice Chevalier made some remarkable movies, usually with Jeannette MacDonald, directed by Ernst Lubitsch or Rouben Mamoulian. They include masterpieces like "The Love Parade," "The Smiling Lieutenant," "One Hour with You," and "Love Me Tonight," remarkable examples of clever dialog delivered with great cleverness and some great tunes. This was made at the same time, at the same studio, but it's a bomb.

The script is uninteresting and certainly not funny. Chevalier, a waiter in a restaurant, comes in to a fortune but gets tricked by his boss at the restaurant such that, if he stops waiting tables, he will owe his boss 400,000 francs. So Chevalier keeps waiting tables during the day, but doing a poor job of it. That's good for only a lame joke or two.

He is also seeing a wealthy society woman, from whom he wants to hide his waiter background. She's mildly attractive but very disagreeable, so it's hard to understand why he would go to the bother.

There is little music, and what there is is unmemorable.

My advice: skip it.
