Audience Member It may not be the funniest Laurel & Hardy but this early feature is still delightful and at times even quite moving. The boys spend the bulk of the movie trying vainly to locate a toddler's grandfather (helpfully called Smith). One of the best sequences is semi-improvised - Stan fighting sleep as their ward tells him the story of Goldilocks. The cast is studded with cameos by L&H regulars like Billy Gilbert, James Finlayson and Charles Middleton. Even moderate Laurel & Hardy is hugely entertaining. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This was definitely one of the strangest comedies I have yet seen that focused on World War I, as a friend of the duo's dies and leaves his baby daughter in their care, with the hopes of re-acquainting her with his rich family. Trying to find them is of course no easy task, and leads to one comedy of errors after another. Another fine feature film that's gotten them in.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member has alotta slapstick and usual laurel and hardy vehicle Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member With a slightly darker edge than most of Laurel and Hardy's other works, 'Pack Up Your Troubles' is a wonderful mix of comedy and drama. An assortment of gags that hit the mark and the casting of the incredibly adorable Jacquie Lyn as the plot's catalyst make this is a must-see.
