Audience Member Brought a couple of minor smirks. It was watchable enough, very short and rather silly. 6/10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Mike M Like the stars' best shorts, it's entirely self-contained, developing its idea - and the chaos the pair might wreak - over the course of the full two reels; while lacking in standout moments, it's at least consistently amusing, and something of a lesson in the art of the pratfall: everybody who gets hit in the face with a shoe or a brick looks as though they actually got hit in the face with a shoe or a brick. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/12/11 Full Review Audience Member This movie is okay, it's pretty funny most of the time, but it's not as funny as some of their other movies, and it's a bit boring at times too. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member My second Laurel and Hardy film of the evening. The sound is a bit ropey on this one but the presence of James Finlayson (butler) and Edgar Kennedy (cop) make it a goodie. HT Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
