OK Wheeler and Woolsey Film
14 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

The boys are partners in a pill company but they battle constantly. So their lawyer finally decides to settle it by a wrestling match. The loser has to serve the other as a valet. But what they don't know is that there is a take-over bid by a bankrupt company waiting to take advantage of their bickering.

Silly plot but there are few funny routines. As always Wheeler and Woolsey are breezy and at ease together. Supporting cast includes Esther Muir as Woolsey's wife, Marjorie Lord as Wheeler's girl friend, Paul Harvey as the take-over executive, Russell Hicks as the lawyer, Patricia Wilder as the vamp, and Pat Flaherty as the thug.
