Mediocre and not nearly as funny as his later Laurel and Hardy films
3 August 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While this isn't a bad film, as it has a few funny moments, but overall the film will most likely leave you thinking that it was a good think Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy teamed up, as this wasn't a particularly good solo effort.

The film begins with Stan as a street cleaner. Naturally, due to his dimness he gets in trouble when he accidentally switches his cart with a baby carriage and from there it's one ho-hum gag after another. A few of the gags, by the way, fail miserably (like the unfunny and unconvincing statue scene) and the rest only provide small laughs.

Don't think just because this film is so adequate that all of Stan Laurel's solo films were like this. Some, like MUD AND SAND as well as DR. PYCKLE AND MR. PRYDE are silent classics waiting for you to discover them--unfortunately, this film isn't! To sum it up in one word..."limp".
