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

I DO (Hal Roach, 1921) **1/2
2 January 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This Harold Lloyd short opens with a potentially dangerous but carefully choreographed gag in which the love-struck comedian is impervious to the heavy traffic while crossing the road. It also features an amusing gag concerning the hiding of liquor bottles by the hero and heroine inside a baby carriage, with curious bystanders wanting to peek at what they think is a baby (somehow, this subterfuge seems to have subsequently been adopted by the entire neighborhood!).

Later, the plot revolves around a lengthy set-piece in which some opportunistic relatives of the Lloyds dump their irrepressible kids in their care (considering that my family have been 'suffering' from this very same burden - with the boy in question being my own mentally-retarded cousin - for the last 17 years, I found this section of the film somewhat uneasy) but the invention here was certainly up to snuff - as when one of the children starts sawing the furniture and then nails Harold's slippers to the floor, and especially the star's disastrous attempt at preparing a bottle of milk for an infant. Also incorporated at this point is the possible intrusion into the couple's home by a suspicious-looking character (who turns out to be just the night-watchman).
