There are tiresome moments but also enough highlights coming along to make the little longueurs bearable. It's true that the Ale and Quail Club quickly becomes slapsticky-tedious, but the Weenie King is great as is the sparky relationship between Joel and Claudette. Mary Astor is a motor-mouth-stunner and Rudy Vallee is priceless. So many lines and some of them are hilarious. The complete ignorance of the truly poor is unusual in Sturges's oeuvre but we have to accept that Joel as an architect with a crackpot scheme, and his ditzy beautiful wife (Claudette who might seem just too amused by it all) must stand in for them. Not quite perfect.
