Storyline

Fatty notices in the newspaper that there is a formal dress Grand Benefit Dance this evening. He wants to go and bring his girl with him, but he doesn't have the appropriate clothes. He and a rival for the girl's affections fight over the issue, the rival who does have a dress suit suitable for the occasion. Unable to get the money from his mother to rent a suit, Fatty manages to "borrow" the rival's suit. Despite the suit being too small, Fatty is able to put it on and go to the dance with his girl. However his rival won't tolerate Fatty's antics and decides to go to the dance and exact his own form of revenge against Fatty. Total mayhem ensues at the dance, with Fatty needing some help from a policeman to be "decent". Written by Huggo

Parents
28 July 2006 | by (Virginia Beach) – See all my reviews

If you want to understand your wife, you need to understand her parents. If you want to understand movies, you need to rummage around in these old things. Mack Sennett is key.

This little project is unimportant, except in context.

Guns as funny. Pantless men at parties as funny. Dispirited fat men as funny. Pretty girls as worth any risk – well, that's a timeless universal.

But here was the funniest man in movies before Chaplin, with his wife, doing his funniest bits. There's little more important in the root of the food chain.

So in a way, you won't have any fun with this until you see almost anything afterward that has physical comedy. Then the mirrors in your visual memory will reflect back to this stuff that you've hung in there; and you'll find yourself chuckling deeper.

Ted's Evaluation -- 2 of 3: Has some interesting elements.
