| Wacky is girl-crazy.
Eddie Arnold plays Wacky Waters, a talented but extremely selfish baseball player. Again and again, he gets involved with women and soon his play on the field is horrible. His exasperated coach asks him to promise to stop chasing women and Wacky promises...and within minutes begins chasing yet another woman. This time it's the actress Pepita (Lupe Valez) and they go from dating to married almost instantly. Not surprisingly, his teammates are annoyed and Pepita doesn't exactly inspire confidence in anyone, as she's pretty obnoxious. So the players' wives come up with a plan to kidnap Pepita in order to keep her and her negative influence away from Wacky.

This film is anything but subtle. In fact, the word shrill comes to mind--especially when you combine Patsy Kelly, Lupe Valez and Iris Adrian starring in the film as the baseball wives! All three are loud, brash and intense...and together they are a bit hard to take.

The bottom line is that this film is seldom seen on TV...and I can see why. Despite some good ideas, the movie is cursed with an unlikable couple and brashness that borders on obnoxiousness. A misfire that could have been much much better given a bit of subtlety and style.
