Forrest Tucker and Lynn Merrick (both of them likable but also forgettable here) play two young lawyers who are reunited right after the end of WWII and open an office with big plans for the future. But no cases come their way....until a small time crook friend of theirs gets them involved in the case of a millionaire businessman who's been framed for embezzlement by one of his employees. There is not much of a mystery here, and the comedy is no great shakes either, despite the presence of some comedy veterans in the cast. "Dangerous Business" is low-budget, talky, and boring. It runs only 59 minutes, but that is one long hour. *1/2 out of 4.
