The boys operate a ballet school (appearing in drag) and try to help a young inventor sell his idea, to get in the good graces of his girl's father. In their efforts, they get involved with a gang of insurance racketeers. All ends well. Written by

The revolving bar set at Matt Briggs' house was left over from the W.C. Fields temperance scene from 1942's Tales of Manhattan (1942). As the sequence was eventually cut, Fox was able to utilize the standing set for this film. See more »
During Laurel's dusting scene, an off-camera female voice (probably Trudy Marshall's) can be heard laughing. See more »
Problem with this movie is that nothing in the movie really feels connected to each other. The story feels messy and weak. On top of that the supporting actors were also quite horrible in their roles.
No, this is not the best Laurel & Hardy movie. It still is good for some laughs certainly but overall it's a disappointing movie to watch. The movie already begins weak and unfunny. The movie does get better as it progresses but it never reaches the same level as any of the other Laurel & Hardy movies.
Another disappointment was Stan Laurel. He didn't seem to play his character with as much joy as he used to do and his acting was to be honest poor at times.
Still watchable but not really recommendable, even though the movie does have its moments.
