Their Only Sequel.
27 October 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Abbott & Costello return as Slicker Smith & Herbie Brown, who are being discharged and sent home after WWII ends. They have become attached to a little French orphan girl named Evie(played by Beverly Simmons) whom they found in the aftermath of liberating France. They smuggle her back home, where they struggle to get her legally adopted. Meanwhile, they also need help finding jobs, so use the G.I. Bill as help, with comedic consequences. A midget-car racer also becomes involved, as does Sgt. Collins(returning Nat Pendleton). Good sequel with a fine premise(a sort of comedic version of "The Best Years Of Our lives") is quite funny and appealing, with an exciting climatic chase sequence. Pity it was their only sequel though(would have liked to have seen one for "Hold That Ghost"! Oh well...)
