The Jokes Are On 'Jump', 6 April 2007
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

Poor Charley Chase; he can't win in this movie. He plays a reporter, "Jimmy Jump," who goes to work on April 1 and is the butt of a number of April Fools jokes. The little kid who cleans the newsroom is the first to play several stunts on Jimmy. Then a few other reporters and secretaries also make him the butt of their jokes.

"Jump" gets in trouble on two fronts: when he thinks something is a gag and it isn't, and when he tries pulling stuff on the boss that doesn't work. Actually, almost everything backfires on our hero.

The way Jimmy is treat makes this story almost appear kind of sadistic, but it is entertaining and Jimmy gets a few licks in here and there.
