At a residence hotel, Patsy is moving in with Thelma. Thelma has prepared some rules, including singing whenever one feels quarrelsome or angry. Although Thelma tells Patsy that they'll share everything, there's precious little closet or drawer space for Patsy's clothes, little room to maneuver around Thelma in the bathroom, and then a sleepless night for Patsy when Thelma goes sleepwalking. Can they share and share alike, or will Patsy keep on singing? Written by
Another decent entry in Hal Roach's "Girlfriends" series with Patsy Kelly and Thelma Todd. This time out Todd is living in a fancy hotel but she invites Kelly to stay with her. Todd sets down many rules for the place but soon she's breaking all of them and Kelly is taking the heat for it. This isn't the best film in the series but there are enough good moments to make it worth viewing. I'd add that this here is probably one of the most unusual entries in the series because you're really not getting the typical type of humor, which usually depends on Todd doing everything she can to stay out of trouble while Kelly would come along to mess everything up. In this short things are pretty much turned around as it's Todd who is being the annoying one and getting all the trouble started. I think it's a pretty good move by switching things up a bit as we're not left with the same type of humor. Instead we're giving a screenplay that's better written than normal and we get several scenes where the comedy has time to grow instead of just getting one small gag and then off for the next one. The highlight of the film is a scene where the fire hose gets turned on and a drunk walks out of his room and thinks there's a snake loose.
