One of Laurel & Hardy's greatest films was "Sons of the Desert". It's the story of the guys sneaking off to a convention and having a ball when they pretended to be leaving town for Ollie's health. Why? Because they knew their wives wouldn't stand for them going off to have a good time without them. The plot was recycled many times on television on such shows as "The Honeymooners" and "The Flintstones" and here it makes its way to the McDoakes series.
Joe is supposed to be going to Omaha for a convention. However, his slimy office mate, Homer, leads Joe astray--and they go to a women's convention in order to chase women! But Mrs. McDoakes ALSO checks in to the same hotel in Palm Springs and finds out the truth...and Joe has no idea he's in deep, deep trouble.
Despite being a recycled plot, the story manages to have enough new elements and a funny twist at the end that I heartily endorse you seeing it. Clever and just plain fun.
