Mild little comedy and early talky. Perhaps the main attraction is the fey Edward Everett Horton as a leading man. His addled attitude toward sex with the aggressive Julia (Miller) is often a hoot and makes for a different kind of farcical comedy. Just who is she and why has she moved into his house in a seductive manner. He's just too confused to send her away. So she stays, setting up one amusing seduction scene after another. Remember, this is pre-Code 1930, so bedroom set-ups are much more explicit. No real belly laughs here, but Horton does manage a different kind of role and the sort of mugging he made a career of. (Note-- one cutting edge of consumer technology in 1930 is a phonograph needle!)
