After marrying his wife, Harold Lloyd then gets the job of babysitting his two nephews who turn out to be a nightmare. This is a seriously unfunny film that has plenty of site gags but none of them work. The only bright spot is the start of the film where Lloyd is trying to cross a busy street. Apparently when released this had a third reel but Lloyd cut it due to all the negative reviews. With that in mind, I can't help but agree that this is certainly a lesser short from the Third Genius.
Available on DVD through Kino and New Line.
