Lovely, talented, famous - stage star Constance Shaw is everything pants presser Joe Reynolds can't have. Then one day, Constance decides to get back at her two-timing beau by marrying Joe.
The film's title comes from a Red Skelton catchphrase, the storyline comes from Buster Keaton's Spite Marriage and the fun comes from everywhere in this pratfalling usicomedy directed by Vincente Minnelli. Eleanor Powell dances. Lena Horne sings. Jimmy Dorsey swings. Hazel Scott sears the ivories. And Red (as Joe) doods the rest with routines that include his hilarious attempt to put his blotto honeymoon bride to bed and, in a nod to the era, with heroics that pit him against Nazi saboteurs. They're gonna get a whippin'!

Certainly not Red's best (the "Whistling" series & "A Southern Yankee", to name a few, had him really hitting his stride). But with any Skelton comedy, it's worth watching, simply because Red's in it, giving his all.
Like others of its ilk,the plot was forgotten as soon as you
left the cinema.What stayed in the mind was highly professional performances by talented artists of the time,
in this instance Eleanor Powell,without doubt the best female
tap dancer in the movies,with her great original routines.
Also on hand musically,is Lena Horne,the piano playing of Hazel
Scott, plus Jimmy Dorsey's band and vocalists putting across
a great rendition of Star Eyes. Red Skelton who played the male
lead was -because of his buffoonery- not everyone's cup of tea''
nevertheless he was popular.The movie is worth getting for the
