Trivia

The title, "Get Out and Get Under," comes from a popular 1913 song, "He'd Have To Get Under - Get Out And Get Under (To Fix Up His Automobile)" (Music by Maurice Abrahams; Lyrics by Grant Clarke and Edgar Leslie). Robert Israel's score in the 2004 alternate version frequently uses melodies from this song. See more »

Good Harold Lloyd Comedy
12 October 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a good Harold Lloyd comedy that gets plenty of mileage out of the material, and it has quite a few amusing moments. It is one of many silent comedies that take one situation and then stretch it out as far as possible.

The top silent comedians such as Lloyd could often find quite a variety of possibilities in a simple premise.

In this case, most of the story has Harold in a desperate rush to get where he is going. The number of obstacles he encounters is pretty creative, from the expected, such as an uncooperative automobile, to unexpected obstacles such as a friendly little boy and a cute dog. There is some decent slapstick, and there are also some good sight gags, a couple of which might be the movie's best moments. It works pretty well overall.
