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?

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
