After a long wait, a young doctor finally has a patient come to his office. She is a young woman whose father has brought her to be treated for sleep-walking, but the father becomes annoyed with the doctor, and takes his daughter away.

After a series of misadventures, the two of them wind up in the same hotel where the daughter and her father are staying, leading to some hazardous predicaments. Written by Snow Leopard

On the Roof
19 June 2009 | by (Virginia Beach) – See all my reviews

I recently saw "Hangover," and wondered why we find intoxication so universally funny. Not expecting much of an answer from anywhere, I came to this. The gimmick here is that our hero gets drunk and then follows a sleepwalking girl (who Harold later marries!).

The whole movie is a setup for them wandering out on one of those ledges that seems to only exist in movies: incredibly high, just narrow enough to walk on and accessible from double hung windows. Now I have every reason to believe that they really did perform this dangerous stunt — and it is only slightly less impressive that they were only pretending to be oblivious. Many people watching this would know that Harold blew half his hand off in a previous stunt that went wrong.

And yet, it depends on that drunk routine. It didn't seem funny, nor can I see how it ever would have, though I know it was considered hilarious. But then this was made during prohibition, roughly equal to the situation today with roofers.

Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 3: You can find something better to do with this part of your life.
