Storyline

Mercantile owner Mr. Caribeau believes that his favorite goat, Penelope, who is tied up outside his store, has been stolen. In reality, Penelope escaped on her own doing. Penelope ends up in the possession of Stan and Ollie, who learn that she is believed to have been stolen but who Penelope won't leave alone regardless. So Stan and Ollie decide to take Penelope home to their room at the hotel apartment. Keeping her in their room may be a problem as they sneak her in in the middle of the night and as their room is right above the bedroom of their strict landlord. She being in their room leads to one misadventure after another for Stan, Ollie, the landlord and another tenant. But the fact of the police still believing Penelope to be stolen may put an end to Penelope's association with Stan, Ollie and the rest of the people in the building... that is unless Penelope has other ideas.

Laurel & Hardy in their last silent movie.
21 March 2006 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

No this is not an Ed Wood movie. "Angora Love" is Stan Laurel's and Oliver Hardy's last silent movie. The end of an era! In the '20's Laurel & Hardy left a real mark on the silent movie genre with movies that are still popular and being watched and aired regularly, this present day.

It's a shame that this movie is however not among their best.

The premise of the movie sounds good and is good. The boys team up with a goat this time, which of course leads them into trouble and for us some hilarious situations to watch. It however at the same time is extremely silly and just totally unbelievable to watch the boys doing comedy stuff with a goat. Most of the jokes in the movie still work good but the movie just however never gets truly hilarious or memorable. The comedy and story really feels lacking at times and is mostly too simple and predictable.

Of course still good and fun enough to watch for the fans but still a slightly disappointing last silent Laurel & Hardy entry.

7/10
