In this Joe McDoakes Comedy, Alice insists they go to a night club, although Joe is both tired and broke. Once there, where they meet Joe's friend Homer and his girlfriend, Joe gets into the spirit of things, including ordering champagne for all. He can't pay the large tab and follows a conga line out of the club and winds up in the police station. Written by

Funny and at times clever entry in the series has Alice demanding that Joe take her to a night club even though he's tired and doesn't want to go. Once at the club Joe runs into a friend and his beautiful woman and decides to impress them by picking up the tab, which he doesn't have the money to cover. This entry doesn't have the biggest laughs but there are enough good ones to make it worth sitting through. The film really comes alive during the final minutes once it's clear that Joe doesn't have the money to pay and he must figure out a way to get away without paying. That's when a conga dance starts up and what follows was very clever and you can't help but smile at how the film plays out. Joi Lansing, who would go onto appear in some ultra low-budget stuff like HILLBILLYS IN A HAUNTED HOUSE and BIGFOOT, appears as the blonde and actually gets a few nice laughs. Jane Frazee is once again back as Alice and it's rather clear that she doesn't have the same charm as Phyllis Coates who had played the part up to the previous entry. George O'Hanlon once again delivers the goods as McDoakes and certainly keeps the film moving with his funny performance.
