Though one of their later ones, it's HYSTERICAL!
6 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As you people who have read my comments on other movies, I am an ENORMOUS Abbott and Costello fan! This movie is perhaps one of their best of the late 1940's years, alongside Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff.

Now why did I give this movie ten stars out of ten? Because it's just FUNNY, that's why. For example, the opening was very funny and the scene were Costello became the "goodwill ambassador" is brilliant! This is another one of my all time Abbott and Costello favorites of their later years, and I believe that this is another pretty underrated Abbott and Costello film.
