Either you like The Bowery Boys or you don't....and this film clearly is for devoted fans. Its silly quotient is certainly higher than normal, that's for sure!
When the film begins, Sach (Huntz Hall) has found a magic lamp and when he rubs it, out pops a very odd genie (Eric Blore). It offers to grant him any wish (not just three) but because Sach is an idiot, he offers to share it with Slip (Leo Gorcey). But then Slip gives him an odd order--the genie can only grant wishes if BOTH he Sach and Slip agree on it. This is interesting because soon two teams of crooks show up and try to take the lamp. But even when they get it, the genie is bound by Slip's command...he cannot do any wishes until both of the 'boys' (actually both were in their mid-late 30s) agree.
Even for a Bowery Boys film, having a genie appearing and disappearing is highly unusual and rather dumb. Overall, the film does nothing to convert non-fans and might actually make a few fans think twice about their love for the Boys! Only okay...with lots of folks bonking each other on the heads, a goofy genie and nothing more.
