Neatly directed by Joseph Santley, this six-reel support provides more than passable entertainment. Not only is Hugh Herbert in top comic form, but he receives solid backing from Ruth Donnelly, Joy Hodges, Juanita Quigley and Cecil Cunningham. Even Eddie Quillan and Thomas Beck contribute something. And all the players are most attractively lensed by Milton Krasner's camera. The use of standing sets gives the film's production values an "A" look. What's more, the script doesn't strain for effects, but finds plenty of humor in credible and familiar domestic incidents. Some may be a bit dated, but they still carry a ring of truth which adds to the movie's appeal.
