Charley Chase, a stockbroker, gets rich by mistake, has parking trouble, then at home finds his wife Toots seeing a psychic who apparently causes husband and wife to switch bodies!Written by

Very weak and unfunny short has Charley Chase coming home to find his wife (Jeanie Roberts) with a group of other woman and all of them talking with a psychic. This sets Chase off and he wishes that he could be his wife for a day and have it easy. His wish is granted. OKAY TOOTS! has a fun title but sadly everything after the opening credits is pretty weak and this includes Chase who is usually very dependable. Chase is actually one of my favorite comedians from this period but there's no question that he made some bad films at MGM and this here is one of them. The entire situation just isn't funny to begin with and it gets even more annoying when you throw in the high pitched voice they make Roberts use. The "twist" in the story is the simple use of dubbing as the Chase character eventually gets Roberts' voice and Roberts gets the voice of Chase. Again, once this happens there's not a single laugh to be found and instead you're simply going to want to put cotton in your ears to avoid the pain of listening to these failed jokes. Even the short appearance from Hattie McDaniel can't make this work.
