Storyline

It is the Lindsay's wedding anniversary and they are fighting. To help them settle down with a house and children, Uncle Matt writes Lord Epping for his help in getting the Lindsay's a war orphan. Unfortunately, he does not state which war and Epping gets one from WWI. The orphan is Fifi who is in her twenties and there is trouble for Uncle Matt and Dennis if their wives find out. So Uncle Matt takes Fifi to the Bide-A-While Inn to hide her, but Miss Pepper believes that something is wrong with this couple with the same last names. Trouble brews when Uncle Matt pretends to be Lord Epping and Fifi's boyfriend Pierre comes looking for her. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Much Ado About Fifi
20 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The movie starts off with Carmelita (Lupe Velez) yelling over nothing. It's very hard to like her. Which is perhaps why she often takes a back seat to other players in her own series. Once again, as with the last two films in the series, the unofficial star is Leon Errol. He is given two roles to play (again) and given the majority of the screen time. Not to mention the funniest parts of the script, which aren't many. Charles "Buddy" Rogers has replaced Donald Woods as husband Dennis and he's every bit as bland. Perennial acquired taste Zasu Pitts is also in the film as a busybody hotel manager.

The plot is about Uncle Matt (Errol) writing to Lord Epping (also Errol) about possibly getting a war orphan for Carmelita and Dennis. Epping brings an orphan, alright, but it's an orphan from World War I. So she's a twentysomething French beauty named Fifi (Marion Martin). Fifi likes to kiss a lot (because she's French, I guess). Fearing Carmelita's reaction, Matt tries to hide Fifi away which leads to suspicions of him having an affair. Then Fifi's French boyfriend shows up and chaos ensues. I'm not a big fan of the Mexican Spitfire series. They aren't bad movies but not terribly good, either. The mistaken identity gags are pretty tired by this point if you have seen others in the series. This one at least has a different plot than the last two. Sexy Marion Martin is also a plus.
