A Fun Romp With Mr. Lloyd
7 January 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

This is an unusual domestic comedy for Harold Lloyd. Instead of spending the movie trying to "get the girl," he marries her in the first few minutes and spends the next hour dealing with the trials of wedded bliss.

In a way, the feature can really be seen as a melding together of 3 shorts. In the first, Harold attempts to navigate his way home with multiple small packages & a very live turkey. In the second, Harold illustrates the pitfalls of taking the in-laws (including a monstrous mother-in-law) for a ride about town in the new family car. In the third segment, well - it's hilarious, but you'll need to see it for yourself...

Harold Lloyd is wonderful throughout. But then you expected that, didn't you?
