Pleasant if you like the humor of Burns and Allen,...but I don't
16 July 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I will admit that this is a competently made comedy short and it does provide a few laughs, I generally don't like the humor of Burns and Allen--in particular, I find I get annoyed with Gracie's prattling and a little of it goes a long way. Perhaps that might be because I have a family member that generally sounds like Gracie (it's no act) and my brother and I never found it all that funny in real life! But I have talked to other people who also found that the team's comedy didn't age all that well. However, before George meets Gracie, there are a few cute moments in the film as he interacts with the pretty horrid staff at a fancy hotel. And, the production values from Paramount are pretty good, so it's worth at least a quick look if you are curious since it's such a short film.
