Entertaining Hal Roach Production
9 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is a typically wacky fast-paced Hal Roach comedy padded with some laughably ridiculous musical numbers.

It has everything - coochie dancers, pan-American travelog, Latin crooners, jungle romance, buxom blondes, blackface mammies, mediums, even a midget. The only furnishing it lacks is a suitably funny leading man. George Givot's performance as the obnoxious boob running from alimony payments wont leave you begging for more. Despite the occasional cramp he puts in the fun, the rest of the cast sail through the gags effortlessly.

I hope it shows up as an extra in a DVD package in the future - a true delight.
