A strange concoction. Some of the Olsen and Johnson visual routines are incredible and some are painfully corny (and I like corny routines). Their standup routine in a nightclub is really bad. The sight gags seem to be inspired by animated cartoons as the two pull out all sorts of weird items at a moments notice. The hotel scene is a standout example.
There are way too many standard 1940's musical numbers for my taste. But the other acts were sometimes entertaining. The harp and violin hobos were funny.
This was shown on the TRIO network as part of Quentin Tarantino's favorite movie month. I think he likes it because of the "shocking" ending, that's it. I wouldn't suggest go out of your way to see it although.
