Joe McDoakes is going to be evicted and must look for another place to live. His wife insanely believes they can just build a house and move there...even though they have less than 30 days until their lease is expired. Having few options, Joe's 'friend' at work offers to help them....and each time he does so, the McDoakes' are less than satisfied with the result. In short, the friend is an opportunistic jerk.
This short film came just after "So You Want to Rent an Apartment"....one of the best Joe McDoakes pictures. However, while enjoyable its laughs seem a bit forced and isn't nearly as fun as its predecessor. Worth seeing, perhaps, but not among the better films.
