In the fourth film of the well-proven odd stage and tv couple Martin/Lewis the latter suffers as a sick mama's boy under almost mystical father-terror of typical American heritage: football is here the touchstone of true manhood. This college story treats the issue not only as a vehicle for Lewis' comedy. The strong ego in an all-American way of life gets what it deserves.
