Feet First is a comedy film from 1930, starring Harold Lloyd as the main character, named Harold Home. Harold is an ambitious young man working a retail job where he garners no respect from anyone. The bumbling, unconfident Harold eventually meets the woman of his dreams and antics ensue as he tries to win her over.
Despite it's age, Feet First is still hilarious at times. With ageless bits, such as trying to get rid of a bunch of magazines that show Home in an undesired ad, only to have all of the magazines picked up by the wind and distributed to everyone around. There is also an adrenaline-pumping climax.
Unfortunately, not all of the jokes hold up and the gags that flop will make you cringe. There are also scenes of poor acting from some of the supporting characters. The old display of drunkenness is extremely inaccurate and hard to watch, as the actors seem to be trying too hard to appear intoxicated. The display is extremely embarrassing to watch. Apparently, the only person they have ever seen drunk is Bugs Bunny.
This movie is not exceptionally funny or interesting. Unless you simply desire to see the (in)famous Harold Lloyd in action, I don't recommend it.
