Charley Chase recounts his experiences of his doomed trip to California with his wife and mother-in-law to his work colleagues. Apparently it was hell from the very beginning as his in-law nags and treats him like a hapless know-nothing. His wife always backs up this nagging by saying 'mother knows best'.
Listening to her advice only lands them in more trouble. After being held up by highway thieves, Charley accidentally trashes some old geezers car, refuses to pick up two apparently desperate hitchhikers (Laurel and Hardy no less) and is barred from entering California as the border patrol think he's just a hobo.
It's an amusing short, with some laugh out loud scenes. It comes to an abrupt end and I'm not sure about the spontaneous musical number, but pretty entertaining nonetheless.
