Has A Manic Pace, But Not Really That Interesting
17 January 2006 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

Although this has a manic pace that builds up to an involved chase sequence, this Keystone comedy ends up not being particularly interesting or entertaining. The characters are plain, and there often seems to be little reason for some of the story developments. The gag ideas likewise are fast-paced but often unimaginative.

Mack Swain stars as a jealous husband who takes in a wounded hunter, only to become outraged at the hunter's advances on his wife. Before long a chase is underway, and soon after that the Keystone Cops join in. The chase sequence tries to involve some incongruous means of transport competing with one another, but aside from that, there are a lot of other similar comedies from the era that work much better than this one does.
