Storyline

Mr. and Mrs. Gussle are taking a day outing together at a park. Henpecked Mr. Gussle just wants to go somewhere quiet and have a drink, but Mrs. Gussle will have none of that. Instead they get into one misadventure after another at the park, including with a a newspaper boy, with a couple in a motor car, and with a monkey at the zoo. But it's their encounter with a young picnicking couple that could cause the most problem, as Mr. Gussle is attracted to the woman and would rather spend the day with her than with his wife.

Keystone slapstick
15 May 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An unremarkable Keystone effort with much mugging and physical attacks. This is what people think of when they think of a Mack Sennet comedy: much movement and little in the way of sense, as people beat each other up and wander into open cages at the zoo. None of Keystone's top comics are in this one, although Sydney Chaplin, as the lead, manages a few graceful surprises.
