Laugh out loud funny, and very naughty
25 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the other reviews and they make some valid points about quality of production and maybe a little stiff acting, but the pace was excellent, and the dialogue and story was so funny I almost peed my pants. I was laughing so hard, I had to keep pausing the movie so I could wipe the tears from my eyes and catch my breath.

JC and Eliot's comedic timing, delivery, and facial expressions were much better than I expect from a movie from 1929 (or even 2009, for that matter), and I absolutely fell in love with Marion Shilling. Anyone who loves the bawdiness of Pre-Code cinema will not be disappointed. There are sexual innuendos and double entendres that will make your jaw drop.

This is a movie I want to own because I want to see it another 20 times, but alas, no DVD as of yet.

It's not a 10 out of 10 movie, but I had to try and make up for the other reviewers low marks.
