This is my 2nd favorite Martin & Lewis film, after Sailor Beware. It's stock full of some of their best routines, and co-starring Lizabeth Scott & the legendary Carmen Miranda only add to this Classic! Bob Hope & Paulette Goddard made the original in 1941 & truly,Ghostbreakers did not need to be remade, so they changed some of the story around & created quite a kick butt musical. Although I miss Willie Best, who is always a treat in the original.
But Dean & Jerry make this one for the ages with their stage act brought to screen, as Jerry plays a waiter who accidentally spills spaghetti on a patron, and gets side swiped into performing on stage with Dean, those 3 to 5 minutes are absolutely HILARIOUS! I never got to see Dean & Jerry live as I am only 43 yrs. old, but if this scene was any reflection of their live act, it had to be awesome.
Most of the movie follows the exact same pattern as Ghostbreakers, but Dean & Jerry add much flavor as does Ms. Scott, and the musical routines with Carmen Miranda are perfect! If you want to be entertained watch this movie!
