Which is Olsen and which is Johnson?
8 April 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I suppose some people will like this, but not me. Olsen and Johnson, we are told, are one of the Crazy Comedy teams, like the Marx Brothers, the Ritz Brothers and Wheeler and Woolsey. The problem is that the farce is set up so absurdly with characters that are not particularly funny and the three leads -- Olsen, Johnson and Winnie Lightner -- play their parts at the top of their lungs. Lloyd Bacon seems to be at a loss as to how to direct these three other than by drowning out the two comics with a storm at sea. Unfortunately it doesn't work and they can still be heard.

Claude Gillingwater does his best with his role as a bathing suit manufacturer who would consider a burkha too revealing. Talented and gorgeous comediennes Dorothy Christy and Vivian Oakland are wasted and for some reason, the musical score includes Cole Porter's "You've Got That Thing." A thoroughgoing dud. Keep an eye out for HELLZAPOPPIN, but skip this one.
