An okay short....but a great finale!
15 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Mrs. McDoakes (Phyllis Coates) insists that she and Joe throw a dinner party. The problem is Joe is exhausted and in no condition to invite anyone over for anything. Not surprisingly, he makes a mess of things and the party turns out to be a bust. It's a shame, as most of the folks are creditors and they are hoping to make friends with these people so they won't have their things repossessed. After a game of Post Office, where all the guys take turns mauling Mrs. McDoakes, Joe has had enough. What's next? See the film.

This is a decent installment in the long series. However, the silly ending really makes this one worth seeing. Very clever and a bit of a surprise!
