Look Pleasant, Please (1918)

** (out of 4)

A group of women go to have their pictures taken but the photographer is somewhat of a creep as he can't keep his hands off them. This doesn't sit well for one woman (Bebe Daniels) who calls her husband (Bud Jamison) who threatens to kill the photographer. Before he gets there however, an innocent man (Harold Lloyd) takes over the job and he doesn't realize the trouble he's in. LOOK PLEASANT, PLEASE is a pretty weak comedy and in fact there's really not any laughs. The basic "story" is pretty simple as you wait and wait and then wait some more for the husband to show up but this doesn't happen until the very end of the film. Everything leading up to that was pretty boring as Lloyd finds himself taking pictures even though he hasn't a clue to what he's doing. For the most part we just get a group of people showing up and Lloyd makes them pose in weird positions. It's just not funny. I will say that the comic legend does a nice job with the part and he certainly keeps it a lot more interesting than it deserves to be. Daniels pretty much disappears from the picture so she can't add much and the same is true for Jamison who just doesn't get anything to do.
