  • Stan and Ollie are each married to the other's identical twin sister, and soon make a riot out of a quiet anniversary dinner.

    Truly Laurel and Hardy at their most feminine! The boys look hilarious dressed in drag as their wives, and this is probably the most interesting aspect of the film. If the drag is a highlight, there are plenty of lowlights. The telephone/ice cream gag is drawn out too long to really be funny and the dubbed voice for the female version of Stan is really annoying. The ending is also very predictable and not that funny. The best parts are probably the scenes where female Ollie is applying make-up, and the part where he/she is hit with the cake and looks like a picture of Queen Elizabeth. A neat film but not a classic.moreless
