You ain't playin' around with no 8-ball!
19 April 2011 | by (Midland, GA) – See all my reviews

Tolerable time-waster notable mainly for featuring at least two cast members who went on to conquer better things. The story: the never-seen star rower Bob Terry has been confiscated by the army, and two of his teammates pull the old switcharoo using a random but burly guy they meet (Frank Sully) who, unknown to them, is wanted by the law (he's a safe-cracker). Not only do Frankie and Tad have to overcome this monkey's seasickness (using mothballs?) they also must make the guy smart so he won't flunk biology and get kicked off the rowing team. Helping them is Martan Moreland, who's responsible for much of the film's laughs - "Take it easy, Mr Frankie, you ain't playin' around with no 8-ball!"

Joining the fun are Gale Storm who went on to TV fame with MY LITTLE MARGIE and Frank Faylen from DOBIE GILLIS and Disney's THE MONKEY'S UNCLE. Watch for a scene where Faylen punches a guy in the chin, causing him to fall backwards. TMU features a scene that parallels this one, only it's Annette punching Faylen, causing him to fall backward - accompanied by a hilarious musical sound effect. Other comic scenes of note are where the absent-minded biology prof can't find his frog and wonders if he accidentally ate it for lunch (and this guy has the nerve to flunk students?) - and Moreland explaining "metatarsus" to girlfriend. Keye Luke from the Charlie Chan series adds a multicultural element.
