Abbott and Costello starrer is one continual chase, with the boys displaying their familiar routines and antics for plenty of laughs en route. In addition to the broad horseplay of the two comedians, picture has six song numbers.

Chase gets away right at the opening, with the two comics heading west in a Chicago municipal bus bound for the Coast. Gags and routines are dropped plentifully along the route, until boys switch to a sailing yacht. This lands them on a South Sea island as locale for further horseplay.

Despite the fact that many of the gag sequences have been filmed many times before, the spontaneous and expertly timed deliveries by Abbott and Costello dress them up in new regalia for cinch laugh reaction. Director Erle Kenton, veteran of Hollywood’s comedy scene, pulls many an oldie out of the files for the boys to romp around with merrily.
