  • If there's a typical Hawks composition, I don't know what it is yet — I need the words to feel his presence — and this speedy farce provides no answers, though it does tick off some of the characteristic gender confusion items (men in drag) and panicked men fearing women. A sturdy/brisk farce despite missing most of reel 2 and all of reel 3, with college boys uniting in lusty solidarity with neglected wives to teach their philandering husbands a lesson.
