Storyline

Intent on dazzling the high-society, the nouveau-riche, Mrs Culpepper, decides to throw a smart dinner party--and of all people--Stan and Ollie are her not-so-competent waiters. The boys claim to have experience in waiting; however, are they good enough to serve the madame's hand-picked guests? Are they even capable of serving a simple salad? And what about the pièce de résistance--a magnificently enormous fluffy cake? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

This entire movie was re-worked into a smaller timescale eleven years later in the first part of A Chump at Oxford (1939), with Stan & Ollie posing as maid & butler. Also, Anita Garvin re-prised her role in that movie as the host, and adopted the name "Mrs. Vandervere" as her character name. This is the real-life name of one of the party guests seen in THIS movie. See more »

Some Wiggler
19 August 2004 | by SycotronSee all my reviews

"Some wiggler huh?" Oliver Hardy says while both he and Stan Laurel ogle Anita Garvin's swaying backside (and quite an ogle inducing backside it is).

Quite refreshing to see a pre-code comedy that shows that men were not indifferent to female charms despite what most films from 1935 to 1950-something would have us believe. Nothing smutty like you would see today. Just an appreciation of the female form in all it's glory.

And besides, it's Laurel & Hardy.
