The individual scenes and performances are hilarious, but if you sit back and look at the big picture it really doesn't make much sense. Author Kenneth Bixby (George Brent) has proposed to his secretary Anne (Ann Sheridan), and in the first scene she accepts. Apparently Ken has a roving eye for the ladies, and Anne knows this yet is ready to marry this guy. Now maybe that might make sense because love generally trumps common sense. What doesn't make sense is when Ken's now married old flame of eight years ago, Julie (Osa Massen), shows up acting like a groupie with Ken not even remembering her at first, yet he still agrees to have a romantic rendezvous with her. Ken is supposed to be such the ladie's man yet he acts like Julie is a hot potato he would just as soon get rid of - so why doesn't he? Ken behaves more like a kleptomaniac than a great lover - carting Julie around like a stolen watch where the thrill of the crime is much more exciting than the ill gotten loot to which he is largely indifferent. Likewise, secretary Anne seems to enjoy catching Ken in the act of lying about other women and doesn't seem disappointed in his behavior at all.

The individual scenes, witty dialogue, and performances make up for all of this to a degree. There is the great Charlie Ruggles as Julie's husband who is grateful that someone has come along - Ken - to finally rid him of her annoying presence without him having to pay alimony. Then there is Jane Wyman as Julie's cousin and William Orr as her overbearing fiancé who want to insert themselves into the Julie/Ken romance as the keepers of decency with their elaborate schemes to keep the two apart.

It's a good thing this is a comedy because there is nobody to sympathize with in this film. Julie would be a sympathetic figure if she just wasn't so manic and emotionally needy. Likewise I'd feel sorry for Anne if she didn't have the annoying habit of undoing Ken's one positive character trait - that of being a big tipper. Anytime Ken leaves a tip she takes it out of the waiter's hand and replaces it with something much smaller.

I'd recommend this one if you are just willing to take off your thinking cap, laugh, and enjoy.
