Never heard of this movie before, and rather liked it.

A fun classic W.C. Fields, this time playing an inventor who makes a possible million-dollar idea: car tires that don't go flat. Although the idea of Fields playing an inventor sounds like lots of ideas for wacky gags, it's not really about that, but about the failed attempts and the depression of the inventor. Oh but believe me, it is very funny, with even the scene of attempted suicide being incredibly funny...

Not W.C.'s best, but still very good, with some absolutely classic moments. The story just isn't well developed enough. The third act drags. But absolutely worth seeing. I mean, it's only 67 fucking minutes. Go for it. See all his movies. The man was a damn genius.

Very funny Fields film that contains some classic moments such as walking an ostrich and a nice reenactment of his short "The Golf Specialist."

Despite an absurdly funny climactic golf scene, "You're Telling Me!" pales in comparison to Fields' best work.

A good Fields movie, but not a classic. A lot of gags, mostly in the first act, fall flat; for example Fields tries to do the Stan Laurel bit where he makes simple tasks like closing a door look so difficult, be he fails in comparison. But there are a number of hilarious sequences as well, like the final act at the golf course which is an almost line-by-line remake of his classic short "The Golf Specialist", and its almost as perfect here especially with an added plot precursor. Overall pretty funny.
