Storyline

The newly rich Mrs. Culpepper, eager to make an impression in high society, has planned a big dinner party.

But her worst problem is that the two special waiters whom she has hired turn out to be clumsy and inexperienced bumblers. Written by Snow Leopard

Trivia

This entire movie was re-worked into a smaller timescale eleven years later in the first part of A Chump at Oxford (1940), with Stan & Ollie posing as maid & butler. Also, Anita Garvin re-prised her role in that movie as the host, and adopted the name "Mrs. Vandervere" as her character name. This is the real-life name of one of the party guests seen in THIS movie. See more »

Pretty Good Laurel & Hardy Short
17 May 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good Laurel and Hardy short comedy - it's not as creative as their very best features, but it's definitely enjoyable, and it contains some good gags. The main thing that keeps it from being better is that in "From Soup To Nuts" you not only see most of the gags coming, but there are few surprises in how they play out. In their best comedies, you often don't know what's going to happen next.

The setup has Stanley and Oliver as waiters hired for a lavish dinner party in the home of a rich couple. There is plenty of good material in the setting, and most of the comedy ideas are funny enough in themselves. Anita Garvin also helps out quite a bit as the hostess, and she has a couple of running gags of her own. As with most Laurel and Hardy features, you can watch this more than once and still be amused at their antics.
