Bob Hope enters the realm of near-bedroom farce as he finds a near-unclad film star on his hands in a lake cottage and his ever-loving spouse continually appearing on the scene. If the action sometimes seems to get out of hand it really doesn’t matter, for Phyllis Diller is there too, to help him hide the delectable Elke Sommer from the missus.
Hope plays his role straight for the most part, making the most of the situation. George Marshall’s direction sparks events in proper perspective, wisely allowing his characters to go their separate ways in their own particular styles. Sommer, who knows her way through a comedy scene either with or without clothes, elects the latter state for most of her thesping, raimented mostly in a shirt. Diller is immense as the nosy domestic responsible for the majority of the funny lines that abound throughout the fast unfoldment.
