Generally Amusing Treatment of a Familiar Plot
23 January 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This short Harry Langdon comedy takes a very familiar plot and uses it to pretty good effect. There are no hilarious gags, but it is generally lively and fairly amusing, with a number of good moments. The plot has Harry trying to slip away from his domineering wife so that he can enjoy an afternoon of fun with his pal (Vernon Dent) - Laurel & Hardy used the same general idea in several films, as have numerous other comics. Langdon's distinctive, boyish style doesn't always work, but at times it is quite funny, and his approach gives this a somewhat different feel from other movies of the kind. He also has a good stunt with cars towards the end. Not a great movie, but one worth watching for fans of silent comedy.
