The title of the movie where Bob Hope got his signature song.
2 September 2002 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Bob Hope plays a down of his luck writer who do not want the wife to work. His wife finds a job to make ends meet to pay the bills, so he can write. Company come to visit unexpectedly chaos break loose. I do not think is Bob Hope best movie work, but his comedic style show through in story line. There are better films he did in career that show his talent full of potential plots comedic skill. Hope is funny starring with himself in Casanova's Big Night and The Princess and the Pirate, or with Bing Crosby in the Road Pictures. Just to name a few of his better films. The film was in enjoyable to watch, but the only curiosity thing where he got the song for end of his comedic routine.
