Continuity mistake: Laurel and Hardy are in a rented boat with two young women. Laurel is seated behind Hardy. They each have an oar over the left side of the boat and the boat is going in circles as they paddle. After a brief shot of James Finlayson staring at them from the dock, both men's oars are suddenly on the right side of the boat.

Trivia: This was James Finlayson's first sound film, and the first film in which his trademark exclamation of "D'OH!" appeared. Dan Castellaneta later acknowledged this as the originator for Homer Simpson's similar expression of disbelief.
