Funniest Film...and it's SILENT!
10 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen more comedy flicks in my life than I ever care to count, and yet this SILENT film, made in the 1920s, trumps them all! By chance, I caught it on one of those old-movie channels, and it had me on the floor dying with laughter. I was amazed--that little boy had such a phenomenal understanding of humor, and what makes a punch line or a reaction or comedic timing funny! Brilliant. If a movie keeps me laughing the whole way through, it deserves ten stars. (I am normally very picky about my comedies.) It's definitely a new favorite.

Does anyone know where I can get it? I'd love to see it again! Apparently Netflix and Amazon have never even heard of it. Blockbusters, of course, do not hold it.
