Before Chubby leaves the office, he is wearing a single-breasted jacket, but when he goes down to the car, it's a double-breasted jacket and Fluffy tears it up. Later, when the guys stop to eat, Chubby is wearing the single-breasted jacket again. See more »

One dose of these 2 is enough for me. There's another O & J film included in this Mill Creek comedy collection, but no thanks. Hope and Crosby, also wise-cracking would-be con artists in their Road pictures, show by contrast how inferior Olsen & Johnson are as film comedians.
Watched this film just to see Joyce Compton in one of her dumb blonde roles. She's fabulous. But it was irritating to watch O & J routinely belittle and mistreat her. Shockingly, they drove away from the café, miles from their destination, leaving her behind in the dust. However, to her character's credit, she takes no notice of their meanness, catches up to them, and continues to be loyal to these louts. Also enjoyed seeing Lila Lee, a major star in silent films, in a sizable support role.
10 stars for Compton. Zero stars for the 2 stars.
