During WW I, the zany Ritzes audition their new act for an agent. Unfortunately, their humor relies on German accents, and the boys bomb. They join the army and are sent to France to become mule skinners. Overseas they meet Withers, the American daughter of a French officer (Schildkraut).

Mishaps occur when they are mistaken for German spies by some French soldiers, but the Ritzes escape by balloon and end up in Germany. Somehow they make their way back to France, bringing with them a captured German general. This vehicle for the Ritz Brothers' talents is good fun and a lot of

laughs, though just about every gag is forgotten as soon as the picture's over. Withers does a nice job with her part; she was beginning to make the transition from kid star to teen actress. After attending the premiere of this film, Harry Ritz walked out of the theater with his brothers and then

turned to them and said, "Boys, we've gone from bad to Wurtzel!" The remark, of course, summed up Harry Ritz's estimate of the film's producer.
