A Mixed Bag
5 February 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

The offbeat title is perhaps a tip-off as to the nature of this uneven Mack Sennett-produced short feature. It is a mixed bag, with some material that works and other gags that do not come off at all. The story concerns an eccentric inventor and his futuristic ideas, and while it is sometimes interesting, there are also other parts of it that are barely watchable. In one sense, it is a little ahead of its time in that some of the inventions are quite creative, but at other times it is seriously dated because of its unfortunate use of stereotypes. Billy Bevan does a gag with a bunch of cars that is logistically impressive, but somewhat pointless. The gags come one after the other, but too often without a lot of purpose or timing. It might be worth seeing once if you enjoy these old-fashioned silent comedies, but there are many other such films that most viewers will find more entertaining than this one.
