      Synopsis: Bud Abbott and Lou Costello star as two window washers who are given the task of picking up $50,000 for a local mobster. They are double crossed by the guy giving them the money and, because someone is trying to steal it, come up with a plan to mail the money instead.

      Only, because of a classic screw up, the money ends up in the hands of a woman who ends up spending it.

      As a result,


      they are given 36 hours to come up with the $50,000 or will be killed.

      What I liked about this movie: This is a classic Abbott and Costello film.

      There are plenty of sight gags and quite a bit of very intelligent and funny comedy.

      One of my favorite scenes in this movie is where a professional gambler tries to explain horses to Lou using terms like fodder and mudder, confusing him because he thinks the guy is ...


      • saying father and mother.

        It was similar to his Who’s on First routine with Abbott but I was laughing hard enough to have tears in my eyes.

        I also like how the movie avoided being predictable.

        I knew there would be a happy ending; I just didn’t know how they would get the money.

        What I didn’t like about this movie: Toward the end of the film, the two men are trying to get arrested (so they can

        avoid being murdered) by ordering food from a fancy restaurant and not paying.

        They end up going into one of their comedy routines and, to be honest, it wasn’t really all that funny; at least not when compared to the rest of the film.

        My Final Opinion: This is a cute black and white film that manages to be much funnier than I originally expected it to be.

        If you like Abbott and Costello, it’s a movie you should make sure to watch.
