Oliver Hardy finds that getting married is more difficult than he had planned in this two-reeler. It starts off with partner and best man Stan Laurel's adventures with a container of fly spray. While Laurel is ruining the wedding breakfast and cake, Hardy's fiancée, Dulcy (Babe London), is having her own problems. Her father (James Finlayson), who disapproves of the marriage, has locked her in her bedroom. The couple arrange to elope, but Laurel gives away the plans. Hardy, on the requisite elopement ladder, winds up flying through a window. Dulcy tosses her suitcase, but it opens up, and her clothes go flying everywhere. Finally, Hardy, Dulcy, and Laurel make it to the Justice of the Peace (Ben Turpin), but in his confusion, he marries Hardy to Laurel. This Laurel and Hardy short features a rare sound performance by Ben Turpin, best known for his work in silent comedies. This is also the only time Babe London appeared with the boys. It's too bad it was only this once; London's heft and talent made her a good comic foil for Oliver Hardy.
