A bunch of oddballs from different countries are quarantined in a hotel in China. Shenanigans!
This is a W.C. Fields movie, and is extremely silly. Oh, that’s redundant…
The frame story, about all these people coming to this hotel to see a new invention and getting stuck there, is just a vehicle for a lot of comedy routines (like George Burns and Gracie Allen, who are the hotel doctor and nurse) and chase scenes.
Short, silly fun.
