Comedians Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey star here as a pair of salesmen who are framed for robbery and sentenced to a prison where the warden (Edgar Kennedy) and his football coach (Paul Hurst) are desperately trying to beef up their pathetic team so that a rival jailhouse eleven doesn't

drop them from their schedule. Wheeler and Woolsey indulge in their usual zaniness, climaxing in the stop-action game footage wherein Woolsey uses chloroform to bring both teams to their knees. Although directed at a rapid clip by Oscar winner Norman Taurog (SKIPPY), this moderately funny Wheeler

and Woolsey effort was a box-office bomb in 1932.
