enjoyable little comedy
12 October 1999 | by (Hull, Québec) – See all my reviews

Wide Open showcases the comedy talents of Edward Everett Horton and Patsy Ruth Miller who work well as a team. This was one of the 5 pictures they made together in 1929-31. This one contains several amusing scenes (the sleepwalking scene) and good comic support by Louise Fazenda. Horton plays the usual befuddled bachelor who's made fun of by everyone else. Miss Miller is quite charming as his potential love interest who gives him some much needed self-confidence. This is one of her few surviving Warner Bros. talkies. No great shakes but a good, enjoyable comedy.
