Because of the nature of this comedy, where the duo have twin brothers, who, are getting mistaken for them/each other it was a good vehicle for total confusion that works well. The 'respectable' Ollie and Stan and their twin bad-boy sailor brothers, 'Bert and Alf' get into these scrapes. Ollie and Stan decide NOT to tell their wives that they have no-good twin brothers though, leading to more confusion. So much so, it is hard to explain away the gags - it's far better to watch this film and enjoy it. 'Bert' and 'Alf' naturally will try and pick the girls up, only for the married Stan and Ollie, with their wives in tow, who get split up from the boys allowing further confusion, to be accused later of philandering and so the situations continue. This was well written with plenty of gags. It was nice to see Betty Healy as Stan's missus, as according to IMDb she hadn't had much in the way of acting roles and intentionally or not, she looked a good, gangly and scatty partner to Stan. Of course, the great Jimmy Finlayson played the boys' foil well with some good lines coming his way too. Very good and it reminds us all of why the boys are the greatest comedy duo of all time and rightly so!
Two pairs of long-lost twin brothers experience high jinks involving a valuable ring, cases of mistaken identity, and gangsters.
