Storyline

Lawyer Malone's two zany friends embroil him in detective work once too often, and the police are after all three. So Malone must accompany Jake and beautiful Helene on their honeymoon at rustic Lenhart Lodge. There, they plunge into a broad burlesque of murder mystery cliches, with rapid-fire wisecracks, double takes, and every sight gag known to Hollywood. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

One of the Funniest Lines in the Movies
2 August 2005 | by (Van Buren, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

Although this is a somewhat run-of-the-mill film from the World War II period, it is entertaining and a pleasure to see the three stars work together. There are several funny parts in the movie along with several boring scenes with humor that doesn't always work as intended. But one line stands out as a classic, as funny as any line in the marvelous screwball comedy "Bringing Up Baby": When a lady in the lobby looks at Pat O'Brien's magic hat with flowers on top and remarks, "How often do you water your head?" This also gives the viewer a chance to watch an actress who was often wasted in the films of her era, Carole Landis. Then there is the would-be politician George Murphy who was the inspiration for Ronnie Reagan to bid for the White House and win. All in all there is enough to recommend the film as light-weight movie fare, provided the viewer has popcorn and treats to fill in for the slow parts.
