In order to secretly attend a stag party in their honor, the boys urge their wives to travel ahead alone on a jointly-planned Atlantic City vacation by invoking Oliver's fake migraine as an excuse to remain behind.
On their way to the train station with their wives for a vacation in Atlantic City, Stanley and Oliver get a phone call from a fellow lodge member who tells them a surprise stag party in their honor is being held that evening. Oliver feigns illness to get out of the trip, and the wives head off to the train station by themselves. Stanley's attempts to help Oliver get into his lodge uniform turn into a series of disasters. Meanwhile, the wives miss the last train and, returning to discover the deception, come after their husbands with shotguns.Written by

Mr Hardy is a man on great care, caution, and discretion - Mr. Laurel is married too.

Spanish and French language versions of this film were also produced simultaneously. Laurel and Hardy read from cue cards with their lines written phonetically in the appropriate languages. At the time of early talkies, the process of dubbing was not yet perfected. See more »
Stan, Ollie and their wives are going on a trip to Atlantic City, but when Ollie gets a call from a friend saying a stag party is being thrown in his (and Stan's) honor, he cannot resist. The boys get themselves into their usual bit of trouble, although the laughs here are a bit strained, most notably in the long winded boot sequence which went on entirely too long.
