The plot of this Essanay comedy hinges on a practical joke. The prankish friends of the hero decide to "set him up" with the least likely candidate for matrimony. Amazingly, the mismatched couple immediately fall in love. Realizing that they were intended to be the butt of a joke, hero and heroine turn the tables on his mischievous buddies. The critic for the trade magazine Variety complimented the cast of "good looking-young people" who brought the film to life. Unfortunately, it was not Essanay's policy to bill its actors, so we may never know the names of the "stars" of this picture (it is known, however, that soon-to-be-popular leading man J. Warren Kerrigan was then on the studio's payroll).
