Well Look Who It Is...It Is Laurel And Hardy!
22 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is Laurel and Hardy's first film together, and in my opinion, this film is a totally hysterical time that is going to cause you to just keep laughing and laughing! Laurel and Hardy begin their long and glorious film career together in high style! I had seen Laurel and Hardy in some of their talking films, but not very many of their silent films, and so I saw this one along with a few other ones, and I was laughing and laughing away at this! This is one of Laurel and Hardy's best shorts they they ever made, their best one remains the Music Box, and their best feature film is Sons Of The Desert, but this one is one of my favorites, and it is also one of Laurel and Hardy's best shorts that they ever made!

This short is really a must see for all fans of the very hysterical and lovable duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy! If you have not seen this short yet, then you should see it, because you are really going to be laughing at it, you are going to think that this short is really a hysterical time! I have seen a lot of Laurel and Hardy shorts and I have not thought that even one of them is bad, and this one is really a hysterical one that is really going to get you laughing!

10/10
