Arbuckle Carries Material That's Only Fair In Itself
14 November 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The material in this short comedy is only fair at best, but Roscoe Arbuckle does his best, and is able to carry it much of the time. The story is really only one basic comedy idea, stretched out as far as possible to fill up the running time. Edgar Kennedy helps out some, but he likewise is limited by the material.

Arbuckle plays the incorrigible flirt of the title, and it's a good role for him. He was always able to make characters like this entertaining and interesting, and his mannerisms and expressions work in defining the character and in reacting to events. The story really doesn't go anywhere, though, since the only point is the gag about "A Flirt's Mistake", which is not all that imaginative or effective in the first place.

It's still watchable thanks to Arbuckle, but there are many other movies of his that survive and that give him much more to work with.
