Storyline

As a young married couple are bringing home a jug of bootleg liquor, the wife stops to do some shopping. In the meantime, the husband meets his brother-in-law, who asks him to look after his two children for a while. The husband reluctantly takes the children home, where he and his wife find it very difficult to keep them out of trouble or harm. The husband encounters a series of mishaps in hiding his liquor and in getting milk for the youngest child. To make things even worse, a neighbor warns them that there is a burglar loose in the neighborhood. Written by Snow Leopard

Domestic Difficulties With Mr. Lloyd
1 October 2003 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Hal Roach HAROLD LLOYD film.

When he says `I DO' at his nuptials, a young man has no idea the travail his wife's family will put him through.

Harold Lloyd had another winner with this domestic comedy in which he must deal with his wife's nephews, the elder a dreadful little brat and the younger a crying baby, during a long & frightful night. As so often happened, Harold's superb athletic abilities enhance his role, even with half of his mutilated right hand hidden by a special glove. Lloyd's hilarious HOT WATER, which came three years later, doubtless drew some of its inspiration from this film.

I DO originally ran longer, but when the preview audience didn't respond with enough laughs to the opening scenes Harold removed the entire first reel, tightening the picture down to a tad under 25 minutes. The animated sequence depicting the wedding is a nice touch.

Mildred Davis appropriately plays Harold's wife - they would soon be married in real life. Noah Young, who acted many a tough guy in Lloyd's films, lends his menacing presence to the end of the movie.

Robert Israel has composed an excellent film score which perfectly complements Harold's antics on the screen.
