Stan & Ollie have set up their own electrical repair store. Unfortunately, for them, the grocery store opposite is run by the man & wife they encountered with in Them Thar Hills (1935). Stan & Ollie go and visit, to offer the hand of friendship, but the grocer soon becomes convinced that Ollie is trying to seduce his wife. The grocer takes his revenge first upon Stan & Ollie and then upon the goods in their shop, with the duo carrying out similar attacks on the grocer and his property. Written by

Those who have seen a lot of Laurel and Hardy will most likely see that this movie isn't especially original. The plot involving an argument gone awry with the neighboring shop keeper is very reminiscent of their silent film, BIG BUSINESS except in this case they are arguing and becoming VERY destructive with Charlie Hall instead of James Finlayson AND there is the plot element of the jealous husband that was added to TIT FOR TAT. But, despite this lack of originality, the movie is still great fun and it is absolutely wonderful watching the 3 men literally destroy each other's businesses over absolutely nothing! This movie is certainly a sight to behold as their behavior gets more and more and more out of control as the film progresses!
