Bob Hope is always a wonderful comedian, but he has to work with a few handicaps here. First, there's a predictable and mundane script with a plot more fit for the Three Stooges than Hope. Second, the production values look awfully cheap. This looks more like Republic Pictures than Paramount. Third, co-star Signe Hasso is listless and grim, and has no chemistry with Hope at all. She is also saddled with a ridiculous and silly hairstyle. The only memorable delight in the film is William Bendix as a N.Y.City cop. His delivery of his signature line, "What a revolting development this is," is the funniest laugh in the movie. At 75 minutes, the film zips by and is pleasant enough, but not nearly as much fun as "Monsieur Beaucaire," "Paleface" or any of the Road pictures.
