Uneven, But Generally Enjoyable
14 April 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

While it's more uneven than usual for a Mary Pickford feature, "Suds" is generally enjoyable, with a mix of material that works often enough to make it worthwhile. Pickford's character was something of a change-of-pace for her, in that many of the character's problems here are simply her own fault, not the result of circumstance. There is also more silly humor than you expect from Mary, but then there are some better comedy sequences that she pulls off as well as ever.

The story has Pickford as Amanda, a day-dreamer working in a hand laundry, where the other employees see her as a ridiculous romantic at best, and an inept nuisance at worst. The plot is carried in part by her far-fetched fantasies, and in part by her efforts to help out the old horse who pulls the laundry's delivery cart. Most of the scenes hold up well enough on their own, but as a whole it never really seems to get off the ground. Fortunately, Mary could make even the most negligible material seem watchable, so most of it works all right, and there are a couple of very good sequences. With a lesser star, it probably would have fallen apart, and overall it probably gets about as much as it could have from the material.
