| While the joke occasionally wears a bit thin, it is a better than average Joe McDoakes short.
This Joe McDoakes short begins with Joe (George O'Hanlon) and his wife (Phyllis Coates) having a HUGE argument. Both thinks their job in life is the worst and cannot understand why the other isn't more sympathetic. So, they magically change bodies--complete with Joe's body having his wife's voice and vice-versa. Then, each experiences the drudgeries associated with working at the office or being a harried housewife. Much of it is mildly funny--but a few of the scenes (such as late in the film) are quite funny. While this short is far from a must-see, it is funny--something that distinguishes it from some of the other films in the series. Well worth seeing and one of the better entries in the McDoakes shorts.
