could have been a lot funnier
2 May 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is definitely a "lesser known" comedy short from the 1920s. The only reason I saw it was because it was on a DVD by Kino Films featuring non-Laurel and Hardy shorts featuring Ollie. They are interesting and historically important, but also generally average to below average for the style film. Compared to shorts by Chaplin, Keaton, Arbuckle and Lloyd, they are definitely a step below them in quality and humor. Also, the accompanying music was pretty poor by the standards of other silent DVDs. I ended up turning OFF the sound due to the inappropriateness of the music to set the proper mood. But, despite this, they are still worth seeing.

The short is about a divorced couple that try to pretend they are still happily married in order to get $100,000 from their grouchy aunt. This general plot is good and could have really been funny. However, after a promising start, the film lost energy FAST and finally it just degenerated into people hitting each other--slapstick in its simplest form with no real regard to plot.
