Goofs

In the part where Maxine crawls out from under the hay, the negligible amount of straw fibers clinging to her cap and clothing is inconsistent with somebody who's just been buried under hay. Also, the left collar point of her blouse changes from being neatly tucked under the top of her jacket, to being out, flapping in the breeze. See more »

Everytghing But The Kitchen Sink -- And Less
11 October 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

The only good thing this movie has is its title.

Apart from generally uninteresting performances and a ramshackle plot, it has two unforgivable ingredients: puppies being taken from their mother shortly after their birth and the three central figures in blackface.

It also has a plane and its renegade pilot. It has Scotty Becket dressed as a girl for most of the story. It has Mexico (an unlikely looking Mexico.) It has a car that catches on fire. It has a man and woman handcuffed together.

Henry Travers does turn in an amusing performance. But he can't save it -- even though his character has a dog named Perfume.
