Lucky (William Cagney), Bob (Robert Armstrong) and Jimmy (Edgar Kennedy) are best friends, they share a house, a car, and are the three craziest powder mixers of an explosives factory, a place they frequently blow up by accident. Plus, the three share a distrust towards marriage, so when Lucky falls in love with lovely Marian (Marion Burns), who also works for the explosives company, the other two do everything in their power to break up the relationship, even going so far as to writing her a letter claiming that he's already married ...

Eventually, our three heroes are sent to the Latin American country San Rico - mainly because the company has grown tired of their escapades on American soil. In San Rico, Bob gets into a serious relationship with dancer Rosita (Maria Alba), mainly because Jimmy is his translator and promises her marriage in Bob's name ... but eventually they get  so drunk that they confuse the fireworks on a national holiday with a revolution and then try to fight the man they think the oppressor with self-made explosives ... which is when their explosives company goes up, they are charged, and they don't even know if they can defend themselves ... which is when Marian intervenes, blaming everything on Dawson (Ernest Hilliard), who used the San Rico plant of the company for some big time embezzlement scheme and had to blow it up to obscure his traces. And ultimately, our heroes are not only freed, they all get their respective girl - and their kids sure enough grow up to be explosives mixers ...

 

Of course, William Cagney in one of his few leads is no substitute for his brother James (but he's still likeable enough to carry the film), and of course, this film is somewhat episodic in structure and every now and again seems to lose its narrative altogether - but somehow, Flirting with Danger still comes off as an enjoyable light comedy that might not be too big on laughs, but it's also neither stupid nor cheesy enough to outstay its welcome. Now of coursse, the film is far from a classic, but there are way worsse ways to spend 70 minutes.
