Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The party's barely begun for mild-mannered CPA Bruce (Stuart Erwin); browbeaten by his lazy family and his domineering boss, our hero despairs of ever having a good time. Even Bruce's budding romance with Ruth (Ann Sothern) is threatened by his sponging relatives, who demand that he pump extra money into his sister Phyllis's (Arline Judge) marriage to good-for-nothing Martin (Chick Chandler). At long last, the worm turns, as Bruce kicks all the deadbeats out of his house, tells his boss where to go, and embarks on a whole new life with Ruth. Based on a play by Daniel Kusel, The Party's Over is a serviceable vehicle for Stu Erwin, who does a nice job as a milquetoast-turned-tiger. Otherwise, this Columbia feature isn't a whole lot different from the studio's Andy Clyde 2-reelers.
