If you've seen one, you've seen them all -- but if you've seen Chaplin or Arbuckle's versions of the slovenly restaurant, you've seen it done much better. This one depends on the Keystone staples: mugging, fraud and physical violence which of, course, have their own comedic charms. Nor can one deny that it is nice to see Louise Fazenda out of her 'country girl' makeup. Here she plays the gum-chewing girl at the cashier and is quite pretty.
Naturally, the Keystone Kops get involved and there is a fine silly chase to round off the entire effort. If you're a fan of his sort of comedy -- as I am -- you will find it nicely, if not brilliantly done. But I freely admit it's a bit raw for people who think Adam Sandler is funny.
