William Bendix and Joe Sawyer are two Brooklyn mugs who make a success out of the small cab company they started and now head the most successful cab company in the city, but they're still two Brooklyn mugs at heart. The plot of this slight comedy revolves around both Bendix's wife (Grace Bradley) and Sawyer's girlfriend (Arline Judge) thinking that each is having a fling with their gorgeous secretary (Marjorie Woodworth). Bendix, although this film came early in his career, is his usual amusing self (he did much better later that year in a hilarious Abbott & Costello comedy, "Who Done It?") and Sawyer, while not really having much to do, does have his moments and acquits himself well. The stunning Woodworth shows a real flair for comedy, but Bradley's performance veers between stiff and hammy, and throws the picture's pace off somewhat. There's some mistaken identity, some slapstick, and everything finally gets resolved at the end of this 46-minute Hal Roach "streamliner". While's it's hardly a memorable comedy, it's not a complete waste of time, either. Worth a look.
