watch out for kleptomaniacs who think they're "Emperor Jones"
18 January 2008 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

I think this is the right "Bubbling Over"...

In this all-black short musical comedy, a woman has a husband so lazy she can stick a pin in him without him waking up... but announcing lunch gets him up pretty fast. She's also saddled with a bevy of his lazy relatives. Four more come by and sing as a quartet. After the wife learns they had been traveling men, she advises them to keep traveling and kicks them out. The phony Swami who lives upstairs announces that a wealthy relative will come by to share his wealth; unfortunately the man has actually just been mistakenly released from a mental asylum.

There's several songs, and nothing's terribly memorable, but it's enjoyable enough while it lasts.
