Eddie and his Mexican friend Ricardo are expelled from college after Ricardo put Eddie in the girl's dormitory when he was drunk. Per chance Eddie gets mixed up in a bank robbery and is forced to drive the robbers to safety. To get rid of him they force him to leave the USA for Mexico, but a cop is following him. Eddie meets Ricardo there, Ricardo helps him avoid being arrested by the cop when he introduces Eddie as the great Spanish bullfighter Don Sebastian II. The problem is, the cop is still curious and has tickets for the bullfight. Eddie's situation becomes more critical, when he tries to help Ricardo to win the girl he loves, but she's engaged to a "real" Mexican, who is, unknown to her father, involved in illegal business. While trying to avoid all this trouble, Eddie himself falls in love with his friend's girl friend's sister Rosalie, who also want to see the great Don Sebastian II to kill the bull in the arena.

Wow -- with all the big names in this one, expected it to be better. Liberal use of backdrop scenery, and the general Three Stooges buffoonery keep us from getting too invested in this comedy from 1932. With Busby Berkley directing the dance numbers, like the naughty opening number where the school girls wake up, go for a swim, and get dressed, it was sure to keep the audiences watching. Eddie Cantor and Robert Young toot down to Mexico and get into trouble after getting bounced from college. Supporting cast of Noah Beery, a 16 year old Betty Grable, Paulette Goddard, and a 15 year old Jane Wyman in the chorus, if we can believe the dates on IMDb. Feels like a collection of vaudeville acts stapled together....Cantor sings a couple songs. Noah Beery's Mexican accent comes and goes. Leo McCarey had been directing films for 10 years by this time, most of them silents. The acting in this one is a little over the top, kind of like a Three's Company episode. It's okay.
