There is a joke about a great marksman. When you came to his home, you found a fence with bulls-eyes painted on it and right in the middle of each bulls-eye is a bullet hole. A visitor asked the marksman how he came to be able to do that. "There's nothing to it," said the marksman. "I fired the bullets into the fence and painted the bulls-eyes around the holes." That's how I feel about most of Snub's leading comedies for Roach and this one in particular: Snub has shot a number of good gags into this movie, and executed them perfectly, and then written a plot to contain those gags.
No one expects a comedy to be as closely reasoned and logical as a book by Heidigger, but it needs to make some sense. Perhaps it is the rushing to get from one joke to the next, but I don't find this to be more than adequate. On the other hand, the gags are good. And Marie Mosquini is a real cutie-pie.
