decent, but not great
10 May 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good full-length Harold Lloyd film. While it doesn't come close to the quality of THE FRESHMAN or SPEEDY or even GRANDMA'S BOY, it is still funny and will entertain you. But, it also has a relatively shallow plot compared to these other films and spends less time on plot and character development and more time on simple laughs.

Harold is a married guy but his wife seems pretty awful to me--choosing to allow her crappy extended family to mistreat Harold and abuse their hospitality. Throughout the film, Harold's mother-in-law, in particular, treats him pretty badly and most of the audience most likely wanted to see him slug her. But, he is a decent guy and loves his wife, so he holds off,...until he's taken so much crap that ultimately he throws out these jerks and his wife, inexplicably, doesn't seem to mind. Huh?! Certainly NOT memorable but fun nonetheless.
