For June before sophomore year, Eddie heads home to the city, telling his best pals, Mickey and Alabama, that they should come and stay at his parents' house for a night or two while they look for a summer job. Mickey and Alabama show up within minutes of Eddie's arrival home; with their best manners they charm Eddie's skeptical parents who invite them to make themselves at home. They do just that, to the dismay and mounting consternation of Eddie's folks as well as the parents of the gal next door, Eddie's girlfriend Jacquie. Is the mayhem going to last all summer?

Short film in Hal Roach's "Boyfriends" series has Mickey (Mickey Daniels) and Alabama (Grady Sutton) imposing on their best friend. They're only suppose to stay with him for a day but this then turns into weeks, which drives his parents crazy. I'll be honest and admit that I had never heard of this series before this film showed up on Turner Classic Movies but after watching it I certainly hope they air more. I wasn't sure what to expect and of course I didn't have anything to compare it to but this movie certainly made me interesting in seeing the others, which I guess is the best thing I could say. I found the humor to be quite entertaining and the constantly jokes about trying to be Southern were pretty funny. We get some typical Roach comedy like a cake fight but other than that most of the comedy comes from the actors. Comic veteran Billy Gilbert steals the film as the friend's father who slowly goes crazy.
