A Dud But Maybe The Ladies And The Gay Guys Liked The Beefcake
The unspeakably vulgar Jimmy Durante at this point had taken over as MGM's prime comic -- taken over from the great Buster Keaton.
Thankfully Durante has a small role here. But the whole thing is a mess that really doesn't hold together.
I have never attended, taught at, or known of a college where the girls swoon as they do here over the crew! But it's a chance to show boys in bathing suits; so that must have been a selling point.
Otherwise, it is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink sort of affair that needs a plumber badly. Eddie Canor movies of this period were similarly all over the map. There was a differrence, though: They were funny, well cast, and well written.
I miss seeing them on cable TV, in fact.
