One Night in the Tropics

One Night in the Tropics ★★★½

Bud and Lou may not be the leads in this first feature of a theirs off radio, but it’s still an adorable 1940’s rom com. It maybe predictable in more than a few aspects, but I couldn’t help but be entertained throughout. And most importantly the film isn’t unbearable without Bud and Lou being the main focus. The love (square?) between the four central characters is cute to get through, with a few sight gags here and there. Also you get to see the big screen version of Bud and Lou’s icon “Whose on first” routine, which is lifted decently in this version. I will also say the Jonah and the Whale scene is also quite humorous.
