not good
20 May 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If Stan Laurel hadn't later gone on to greater things once he was paired with Oliver Hardy, I doubt if this film would have even survived to this day. That's because it's so unremarkable and uninteresting and amateurish that I can't see any reason to see it other than to see an early Stan. The film appears as if it had no script or even a working idea for the movie (this was NOT uncommon in the 1910-1920 era just before this short was made). If there WAS a script, then whoever wrote it must have just written the words "play around an orange grove and throw citrus at each other" and that was ALL! If you want an earlier Stan Laurel film that is better PLUS it also has Oliver Hardy (but they are not yet a comedy team), try watching LUCKY DOG. It isn't great either, but compared to this little film it's Shakespeare!
