Thelma and Zazu return to their rooming house after a hard day working at a department store. They learn that the gal next door has to come up with twenty-dollars rent by tomorrow or be evicted, so Thelma and Zazu want to do a good deed. The only way they can figure out how to get the money is to be taxi dancers that evening. A bearded old guy seems attracted to Zazu and a sailor to Thelma, but the tickets aren't mounting up. Should they try to increase their sex appeal, or is there another way? Written by <>

Asleep in the Feet (1933)

** (out of 4)

Thelma Todd-Zasu Pitts short has the two playing roommates who hear their landlord threaten to throw the woman out who lives next door if she doesn't come up with twenty bucks. In order to help Todd and Pitts decide to work at a dance club and pick up some extra money but soon the police come in looking to break it up. If you're a fan of the Todd-Pitts combo then I'm sure you'll enjoy this but I guess I'm starting to realize that this duo just doesn't cut it for me. Both actresses were very talented women but at the same time I can't help but think they weren't meant for each other as I've yet to ever feel any real chemistry between the two and in the end we're left with a rather flat film. The "comedy" attempts to come from Pitts and her clueless ways, which ranges from her not being able to properly open a can of condensed milk and then her having to dance with a bunch of dumb men. The one funny moment comes when she is forced to dance with a man twice her height and she ends up breaking a heel. Todd doesn't haven much to do here as she pretty much just stands around and watches what Pitts does. The film actually moves at a pretty good pace but in the end there just weren't enough laughs to keep me entertained.
