Not one of the better Charely Chase films.
23 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Unlike his prior Jimmy Jump films, this one was directed by the great Leo McCary--the famed Hal Roach director who went on to direct classic Hollywood films like "The Awful Truth".

The film begins with Jimmy Jump (Charley Chase) and his wife appearing in a local play. An agent sees the wife and offers her a contract for films--though this portion of the film has NOTHING to do with the rest of the movie!! - The scene now changes. The pair are trying to go to a hotel but the desk manager is an angry guy who does not allow kids or pets--and the wife has a monkey named Jocko. There are a few laughs where Charley sneaks in the animal and later it escapes and runs amok through the hotel--scaring the guests. There really isn't much more to it--and it's hardly one of the better Chase films. Very slight despite McCary's being at the helm.
