What a moronic movie
3 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I couldn't believe my eyes..one of the most stupid movies I got to watch. I mainly watched cause from reading of various forums on movies that Joan Bennett struck a startling resemble to the gorgeous Hedy Lamarr. True, there was that...but she lacked what Hedy had. It was suppose to be slapstick, but to me it was so annoying to watch a pro like Manjou and Gargan sunk so low...slapstick were not their forte. Only one, Victor Mature showed that there was more to come from this actor in the future. The lines were so stupid, that they were embarrassing. Hal Roach must of thought he had the cast of a Harold LLoyd or slapstick cops. Avoid this trash.
