Storyline

Arthur and Vivian are just married, but when the get to their honeymoon suite in Washington D.C., they find it occupied. Arthur goes to meet Slade, his new boss, and when he comes back, he finds three girls in his suite. He orders Vivian to get rid of them, but they are friends of Vivian's and as time goes by, it looks more like Grand Central Station than the quiet honeymoon suite Arthur expected. As long as there is anyone else in the suite, Arthur will not stay there and there will be no honeymoon. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

It's just an incessant noise
2 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Newly-weds Viv (Jane Wyman) and Arthur (Jack Carson) arrive at the bridal suite in a hotel. However, they are not alone. Newly-weds Edna (Anne Sheridan) and Julian (John Ridgely) are already in the room and they end up sharing the apartment. Enter newly-wed Nan (Alexix Smith) who also ends up staying. Then comes Russian Natalia (Eve Arden) .... guess what ... she stays too. During the proceedings, several other men appear. It turns out that none of the women are actually legally married for various reasons and the film takes us to the conclusion where everyone is happy.

I found one line of repeated dialogue funny. It comes from Eve Arden's character when she says "I wooold like a feesh". Apart from that one line, there is no humour in this noisy, unfunny film. Here is an example of what you can expect: ...The doorbell rings and people shout at each other, then the phone rings followed by more shouting, then someone appears and starts shouting, then everyone talks at the same time...oh no, now we've got a comedy character coming in with comedy music....back to the shouting and screeching at each other. This basically goes on for 1 hour and 40 minutes. If this is your kind of humour, then you will enjoy the film. I didn't.

The film contains very irritating characters and I gave up caring about what was going on. One of the film's final punchlines comes when Tom (Craig Stevens) is recounting his tale of soldier heroism which culminates in a situation in which he had to call out the name of his friend "Harry Kerry" and the Japanese perceived this as an order to commit "Hari Kiri"....Groan.... You may want to commit "hara-kiri" yourself after sitting through this.
