Only Fair As Comedy, Somewhat Interesting to See Laurel's Role
This one-reeler has plenty of action, some of it amusing, but in general it is too unrefined and silly to work all that effectively. It is somewhat interesting to see Stan Laurel featured in a role that is quite different from his more familiar characters in the Laurel and Hardy features.
What little there is of a plot has Laurel working in a citrus grove, where he gets into a series of mishaps with his supervisor and co-workers. Some of them are really just routine slapstick, but once it gets going, there are a couple of more creative gags.
Rather than the familiar Stanley character, here Laurel's character is more impish and agile, and he is rather unsympathetic. Some of the gags use the props at hand, but a lot of it just focuses on Laurel's character racing around and jumping around. Laurel adds a little bit of interest to a feature that does have a few laughs, but that overall is really only fair.
