Rene (Maurice Chevalier) arrives back in Paris earlier than expected and so arranges a night out with 3 different women before he meets up with his fiancé Louise (Gertrude Michael). However, a couple have put an unwanted baby into his car which he discovers once he has reached his apartment. Rene and his butler Victor (Edward Everett Horton) grow attached to the baby and decide to keep it. Sally (Helen Twelvetrees) arrives at the flat and is hired as a nurse to the baby. How is Louise going to react when Rene attends a dinner accompanied by Sally and a baby.....?....... It has a happy ending.

The film has some very funny moments and some good comedy sequences - see how Rene ushers Paulette (Adrienne Ames) out of his room unseen with her husband Max (Earle Fox) standing yards away from him.....the French make it look so easy! The cast are all good and the story is entertaining to watch. The only drawback are the 3 songs that Chevalier sings - they are completely forgettable and not necessary. They also take the pace off the film. The best song is sung at the beginning by Mlle. Gabrielle (Leah Ray) but the film is more a comedy than a musical.

It's good entertainment.
