| Corny gags done well
Plenty of corn in this one, but it has its laugh out loud moments. I found the characters appealing, and the humor timeless. Only one or two gags might depend on knowing something about the '30s.

That theaters used to hold raffles to increase attendance will seem a little unusual to todays viewers, but our "hands-on" contests at shopping malls aren't much different. A shiny new car draws 'em in every time.

Kelly (the plain brunette) plays the fool. She's got pratfalls and funny looks in her bag of tricks, but she really shines as an oddball. She seems to ad-lib some of her better riffs, and Todd (the glamorous blonde) hangs in there.

The theme of gal-pals is played very nicely between these two. "When did I ever get you in trouble?" is a pretty good tag line. They remind me of how Lucy and Ethel seemed like natural friends (with issues). It's worth repeated viewings, especially the big traffic jam scene- there's a lot going on there.
