Slim's an incredibly mother-dominated good boy, and ZaSu's a dithering nurse-spinster, in this pleasant teaming. What gives it some juice is that his mom is Laura Hope Crews, just coming off the very serious "The Silver Cord," and she's more than willing to have some fun. It's also quite pre-Code, with the couple's marital coupling interrupted by Mama's machinations, but sex is definitely in the air. A late sequence in Chinatown is fun in an un-PC way, and though neither Slim nor ZaSu does anything they haven't done before, their characters are a bit more layered than you'd expect. Practically never shown, but worth sitting through if you get a chance.
