Zippy comedy based on a hit Broadway comedy that starred Danny Kaye.
Here it's Bob Hope as the army slacker who sells snacks at a fat farm run by girl friend Betty Hutton. After he wrecks a jeep, he's desperate for money.
Eneter three frustrated wives whose husbands have "gone fishing" for the weekend, leaving them mad. So they decide to "hire" some boys for a party. Eve Arden, Zasu Pitts, and Phyllis Povah are the ladies. But the husband also show up with their dates just as Hutton and friends track down Hope and his two stooges.
Lots of zingy lines as the various couples square off. Hutton sings a couple songs. Co-stars Joseph Sawyer, Dave Willock, Raymond Walburn, Andrew Tombes, Dona Drake, and Cully Richards.
