T.H."Randy" Randall and Valerie Randall are divorced but friendly, but not to the extent she doesn't have him jailed for non-payment of alimony. His attorney, Bill Carter, suggests that the only way out of his financial strain is for him to get Valerie married off to someone else. Dizzy matron Ethel thinks that is a good idea and arranges a week-end party at which Valerie is to be paired off with likely-prospect Paul Hunter. Plans are disrupted when free-loading Freddie crashes the party and makes a heavy move on Valerie, and she likes it, mostly because Randy doesn't. Carter can't see any problem - a husband is a husband - but Randy is so certain that Freddie is bad news that he decides to win her back and remarry her himself, since he has also decided that he still loves her.

He Married His Wife casts Joel McCrea and Nancy Kelly as a pair of amiable former marrieds who broke up for McCrea's love of the sport of kings. Now McCrea's nags are interfering with his alimony payments and Kelly feels compelled to have him jailed.
Only thing to do is get her married again which McCrea proposes to get Kelly hitched to their friend good old steady and reliable Lyle Talbot. The deed can be done at Mary Boland's place where the whole gang is spending a weekend.
In fact another possible candidate visits Boland, Cesar Romero from South America. This all shouldn't be a problem but complications arise from everyone present even from Roland Young who offers a lot of trenchant observations. Young is McCrea's attorney.
As screwball comedies go this is a mild and pleasant one. Someone with a real comedic touch like Irene Dunne or Carole Lombard might have got this rated higher. Best in this as she is in so many films is Mary Boland who just rises above the human condition into her own little world.
Fans of the leads should like this.
