In order to secretly attend a stag party in their honor, the boys urge their wives to travel ahead alone on a jointly-planned Atlantic City vacation by invoking Oliver's fake migraine as an excuse to remain behind.
This film, along with Laughing Gravy (1930), were simultaneously produced in Spanish language versions, and the two shorts were edited together into one continuous film Los calaveras (1931). Laurel and Hardy read their lines from cue cards on which Spanish was written phonetically. At the time of early talkies, dubbing was not yet perfected. The same was done for a French language version, Les carottiers (1932).
No man is bigger than the excuses he makes to his wife. So... BE BIG.
There is also a colorized version.
