Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

This comedy shows a day in the life of a hapless pharmacist (W.C. Fields). Browbeaten at home by a domineering wife and a bratty daughter, things don't get much better at his pharmacy. Among other things, a customer orders a box of cough drops and demands that they be delivered to his house (18 miles away!), and another customer orders one stamp but insists that it be cut from the middle of the sheet. Most of the gags and routines in this film were later used in Fields' 1934 film, It's A Gift.
