      Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Only once or twice does this loud farce recall the robust flavor of the partners' first big hit. Reconmmended, though, for juveniles and other A & C addicts. Jan 7, 2020 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com The beginning of the end for the comedy team, but it does have some hilarious moments. Rated: 3/5 Feb 17, 2008 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jul 19, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member An amusing effort which isn't too far off the mark from Laurel and Hardy's superior 'Bonnie Scotland' (1935). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad but a weaker one thus far. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
