After his shipwrecked wife is declared dead and he takes on a new wife, Grant’s first wife resurfaces, rescued after seven years on an island. This reteaming of Grant and Dunne after their success with “The Awful Truth” is pretty funny for the most part, as Grant tries to solve the problem of one wife too many while dealing with jealousy after learning that Dunne had a male companion (Scott) on that island. The only complaint is that the laughs stop in the last quarter of the movie, which is rather uninteresting as the focus shifts from comedy to romance. Bates, who is hilarious as a flustered judge, died in July 1940 but managed to act in 12 films released that year!
