One Last Barrel of Monkeys.
11 October 2002 | by (Atchison, Kansas jwrider @lvnworth.com) – See all my reviews

See my Lawyer marks the fourth and final appearance in a Universal Movie by Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson.The Boys are up to their usual antics, first trying to break a contract with a night club owner with the help of some starving lawyers.Then having to use the same lawyers to save them from a lawsuit from the man they bought the night club from.The boys act and the show is Circus themed.Needless to say when they go to Court it really does become a three ringed Circus.As usual there is interspersed many wonderful specialty acts.The Nat King Cole Trio and Carmen Amaya and her Troupe are in fine form.The Rogers Adagio Trio are unique act,a comedy Ballroom Acrobatic Trio that even as you see it,it is hard to believe some of the things they manage to pull off.Sad to say this the hardest of Olsen and Johnson films to find,but it is worth the effort. I am glad to say they get to finish their movie career in great form.
