Goofs

The film's title is a misnomer. A "co-ed" is a female student attending a gender-mixed college -- but Bixby is an all-girl school and therefore none of its students are co-eds. See more »

Here Come The Co-Eds is a film starring the comedy team of Abbott and Costello. It's directed by Jean Yarbrough and acting support comes from Peggy Ryan, Martha O'Driscoll, June Vincent, Lon Chaney Jr. & Donald Cook. Plot finds the bumbling duo at Bixby College for young ladies, where they get involved in numerous escapades in trying to save the school from closure.

Easily one of Abbott and Costello's best film's, Here Come the Co-Eds finds the boys hitting the high laugh standards they set themselves at their peak. Even the familiar routines are given new life as they seem to respond well to Yarbrough's smooth direction. Top moments are a glue based kitchen sequence, a wrestling match, a basketball game and an excellent boat (on the road) chase finale. Film is boosted considerably by the presence of Phil Spitalny's all-girl 'Hour of Charm' orchestra and the sprightly Peggy Ryan. The latter of which helps provide a show stopper of a tap routine at the basketball match.

Tomfoolery unbound, and with a good production value to boot, this is classic A&C and prescribed to lift the blues. 8/10
