Movie Info

Charley Chase suffers through the vacation from hell in this hilarious two-reeler. He drives to California with his wife (Rosina Lawrence) and his mother-in-law (Bonita Weber), who is determined to run everything. Unfortunately, Rosina always sides with her mother, ever voicing the annoying refrain, "Mother knows best." On the way they are robbed and their car and clothes are taken. Then they try to borrow gas from an old man (Clarence H. Wilson) and accidentally push his car off a cliff. Finally they are arrested as hoboes and tossed in jail. Charley is relating the awful details back home to his co-workers when the new boss walks in -- it's the old man whose car he ruined! There's a notable cameo appearance by duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, who play hitchhikers (Charley refuses to pick them up, claiming they look like a pair of horse thieves). Chase pays homage to his pals by scratching his head in Stan Laurel's inimitable style, and later on, mother-in-law remarks, "Here's another fine mess you've gotten us into!" This was the last two-reeler Chase shot for producer Hal Roach.
