Not one of Keaton's best, since repetitiousness sets in after his first few tries at matrimony. Fortunately for him and the film's prospects, after a sneak preview suggested the film was going to be a flop, he came up with a famous, and very funny, climax where his flight from an army of pursuing women causes an avalanche.
