Almost as Funny as Alimony
4 July 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Like his boss, butler Charles "Charlie" Ruggles (as Oswald Groggs) is jailed for missing alimony payments. "It's like paying for a dead horse," he feels. Unfortunately for the delinquent men, ex-wives have to eat in order to remain overweight and lazy for their lovers. After washing floors, Mr. Ruggles is freed, by wealthy Sidney Blackmer (as Chester Hamilton), who encourages his servant to take a vacation. Ruggles checks into a resort hotel where, posing as a rich African game hunter, he attracts a lot of feminine attention. Gold-digger Verree Teasdale (as Fanny Malone) takes advantage of both men. Cheap and offensive, at best.
