Mostly a One-Joke Comedy
27 August 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This Leon Errol short is mostly a one-joke comedy, though it does pull off that joke fairly well. Errol is as good as ever in portraying the kind of character that he was best at, but this time the story doesn't really give him a lot of material to work with.

The movie starts when Leon's wife (played by Joan Blair, not one of Errol's regulars) gets tired of his philandering and staying out late, so she thinks up a way to teach him a lesson. Thanks to Errol's resourceful characterization of his usual conniving husband character, the main gag comes off all right. But too much of the movie is devoted to setting up just one joke, and there aren't a lot of laughs along the way, as there usually are in Errol's features.

Overall, the movie is not bad, but it's not especially creative, just another version of material that Errol performed more memorably in other pictures. It's watchable, but it's not among Errol's best comedies.
