      mIkeDBIGame One of my favorites. The Sid Fields and Fritz Field routines are the funniest bits in all all Abbott and Costello films outside of Buck Privates. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Steve D Passable entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/28/23 Full Review Audience Member my personal favorite filled with some great vaudeville skits! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I have the collection of these two and I watch them often Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member After being framed for a swindle by a greasy conman (Abbott), Joe Bascombe (Costello) follows the scoundrel to Mexico to clear his name. Unfortunately, Joe is tricked into being the fall guy for [i]another[/i] scheme. "Mexican Hayride" is the first truly bad Abbott & Costello picture I've seen. Not only is the storyline illogical (even by Abbott & Costello standards), but the best gags in here will evoke mild chuckles at best. Even if it was included in the DVD multipack "The Best of Abbott & Costello Vol. 3", this is probably one of their worst. One very strange thing about this film is that it was based on a successful musical from the early 1940s. However, there is only one song in the film and it isn't even by Cole Porter, who wrote the music for the original stage production. Mexican Hayride Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Luba Malina, Tim Powers, Pat Costello, Virginia Grey and John Hubbard Director: Charles Barton Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member My favorite A&C scene of all time in this one in which Lou impersonates an elderly senorita manning a tortilla cart.
