Taking Two Weeks Off for the first time in his life, plumber Dave Pickett (Jack Mulhall) spends his savings on a posh hotel suite. During his vacation, he meets and falls in love with pretty Kitty Weaver (Dorothy Mackaill). Hoping to impress the girl, Dave poses as a famous movie star (Jack Mulhall, perhaps?) His true identity is eventually revealed by a jealous lifeguard, but by that time Kitty has fallen in love with Dave for himself and not what he pretends to be. Perennial Laurel and Hardy stooge James Finlayson co-stars as Kitty's sour-pussed pa. Essentially a silent film, Two Weeks Off contains approximately two reels' worth of dialogue sequences.
