A bookkeeper (Harold Lloyd) grows tired of sitting inside on a beautiful day so he eventually runs away from work and catches spring fever, which causes him to pretty much start a fight with everyone in encounters in a park. The one exception is a beautiful young woman (Bebe Daniels) who he falls for. SPRING FEVER isn't quite as funny as some of the better titles in the Rolin library but it does manage to be entertaining enough to where fans of the star will want to check it out. There are a few memorable scenes here but I think the real highlight is just the way the thing floats from one situation to the next. IMDb lists Hal Roach as being the director and I must say that I was impressed with the flow of the picture. I thought the way Lloyd's character pretty much floated from one bad situation to the next was quite good and certainly helped keep the picture moving. There aren't as many funny moments here during the first half of the picture but this changes towards the end when Lloyd takes Daniels into an ice cream shop and ends up picking up the check when he has no money. The little trick to get the cash is quite funny as is the scene that follows him Lloyd trying to sneak out. As you'd expect, Lloyd is in fine form here as is Daniels who is quite charming.
