This interesting old movie offers some sage advice about tying "The knot". The early scenes where Lloyd improvises and "cart" to carry his intended's packages is amusing and need not elicit gasps compared to todays high energy romps with violence and fast action, and split second decisions.
The decisions in this film are split second for the time and rely on human interaction NOT technology mindless obeyance of the three laws of Natural motion. Here Lloyd as the lead character is interacting with other people and able to influence and be influenced by them. For me as a person who is best at tasks and maintaining focus, this movie shows the fun children get when involved in this group participation, and how distracted Adults can be in these situations. When the young interact it can be manipulative due to inexperience, and not the adult style of malicious. This movie made me remember when My family was together when I was young and how we interacted, how any of us kids got married and moved on when we were EVEN more rambunctious is beyond me. Yet watching this film it reminded me how fun it was to interact, but now I share over this screen instead of in Person. VERY entertaining and charming.
