They were not the marrying kind, so they agreed that neither one could wed until his pal had tried to win his girl away! The funniest love-test ever made, with thrills and laughs galore when they both fall for the same girl!
When Bucker (Robert Armstrong) and Mary (Mae Clarke) go to the movies, the unidentified film they see is an MGM production of 1931, Laughing Sinners (1931). Joan Crawford and Neil Hamilton are on screen. See more »

Had this been a project for MGM it would have assigned Clark Gable and Wallace Beery in the roles that John Gilbert and Robert Armstrong played about a couple of riveters building those skyscrapers in Manhattan. But instead this was an indication of how far Gilbert's stock had fallen at MGM. Actually Armstrong fared worst than Gilbert because his character was so dumbed down it was pathetic. Possibly Wallace Beery could have carried it off.
What a racket Gilbert has and poor dumb Armstrong just goes along. If Armstrong meets a woman Gilbert moves in to 'protect' Armstrong from their wiles and clutches. The fact he's getting a lot of nookie in the interim doesn't faze Armstrong a bit.
It all works nicely until Mae Clarke enters the picture while Gilbert is doing a ten day stretch in jail. Armstrong marries the woman and Gilbert makes his moves without knowing that.
Some nice shots of the construction boom that was New York City back then. These riveters were never out of work, even in the Great Depression. Such folks as Bob Burns and Sterling Holloway are wasted in the kind of parts they normally play.
But the story is ridiculous. The film is based on an unproduced play called Riveters. I don't wonder why it wasn't produced.
