While this isn't the best of Bob Hope's movie, to a great degree because the forgettable songs just take time away from the laughs, it's still generally fun. Hope plays his basic idiot character, in this case a talentless chorus boy who, in what has to be one of the most ludicrous plot devices of the year, is cast as the lead in a musical to protect the true star from a killer. Hope is blissfully unaware of the reason is a sudden star.
Hope is often a bit of a jerk in his films, but he's a bit more of a jerk in this one, especially to the girl who inexplicably loves him. That bothered me more than the absurdity of the plot; how could any girl keep affection for someone who treated her so badly and really had pretty much no redeeming qualities. But then, it's a Bob Hope movie.
