Passable effort, for Joe E. Brown fans only
13 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Predictable plotline is not tremendously funny, but not bad. Strange scene of Brown singing Chinese songs with a trio of Chinese musicians. Usual scenes of Brown on a run-away horse, and in a polo game. Brown is always funny, but most of his other movies are better.
