Surprisingly good
14 September 2002 | by jaykay-10See all my reviews

What's surprising about a picture being good? This one has a B-picture plot (pure fluff), a modest budget, a "leading man" years past his prime, and a pairing (Eddie Cantor and Joan Davis as husband and wife) that doesn't seem to hold much promise. Surprise! Everything works: the gags, both visual and verbal, are funny; the trite story scampers along at a brisk clip; Cantor and Davis are excellent together, masterful at timing their lines, their reactions, their byplay. Make time on your schedule for this one. You'll be glad you did.
