Exotic Keaton sea comedy.
28 April 2004 | by (Oz) – See all my reviews

Buster's bride leaves him, and he swears off women and takes to the sea on his boat "The Cupid." He is picked up by a whaling boat called "The Love Nest," and joins their expedition. The captain (Joe Roberts) throws ships' boys overboard for spilling coffee on him, and tosses a funerary wreath after them! So Buster has to do his best not to get thrown overboard...

Buster can always make my smile. Lots of fun and laughs to be had here, as usual.

This was the last two-reeler Keaton made before graduating to features with The Three Ages, a much needed satire of Griffith's Intolerance.
