Storyline

Betty's father has an invention that looks like a fancy camera; it emits an ultra-lavender ray that temporarily rids the ray's target of inhibitions. To test it, Betty's father zaps Charley hoping his newly-aberrant behavior will cause Betty to end her affections for the milquetoast. Dad's plan backfires: the invention works perfectly, Charley gets a backbone, and Betty loves her new forceful man. However, Charley's courage and lack of a superego get him in trouble with the law. He goes on trial for assaulting a bullying police officer. Is Charley going up the river leaving Betty high and dry? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Charley goes SF!
24 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Charley is engaged to Betty Mack, but prospective father-in-law Frank Austin has invented a device that shoots a spark at you -- and makes you give way to your impulses.

This one shows signs of having been padded: Two songs -- which are always welcome -- including an appropriate nonsense song are used, and there a lovely stuck-on-the-track gag at the beginning of the movie. But the usual typical grace notes that Charley and co-director Eddie Dunn use to fill out the gags -- including the greengrocer who runs a tab for Charley as he throws vegetables at a bullying cop -- helped maintain Charley's string of funny comedies.
