100% pure Laurel and Hardy!
4 May 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For the lovers of Laurel and Hardy out there, this is about as typical as you can find--with lots of bits in this silent film that were reprised in later Stan and Ollie shorts. While some may find this a bit repetitive, there is a nice familiarity about the film--plus in most cases, this was their first film to feature these bits.

The film begins with Stan in misery with a toothache and their irritated landlord losing his patience. Once again, as in THEY GO BOOM, Charlie Hall is the short-tempered landlord and once again the argument results in some funny rough and tumble bits. Then the film switches to the dentist's office and is reminiscent of the dentist portion of PARDON US--but with a twist. Both Stan and Ollie get a massive over-dose of laughing gas and leave the office highly intoxicated. This leads to a funny but overly long segment with traffic cop Edgar Kennedy. It seems to go on forever but end very well.

Again, nothing especially different about this film compared to others, but it is all done so well and is so much fun, I really didn't mind at all. This is one of the more difficult silent shorts of the team to find, but if you do, be sure to give it a watch.
