Three Reels of Fun
12 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is the only three reel comedy from the Boy Friend series by Hal Roach.

The story revolves around Mickey Daniels who just wants to borrow his father's car. He is granted permission with one condition: that he return the car without a scratch. Of course, in a comedy, this rule must be broken. There are many hilarious scenes with Kennedy the cop who gives and receives plenty of trouble. Mickey displays his true comedic talents here with his mastery of facial gestures and goofy personality. The final sequence where the gang stumbles upon a "bad guy" hangout is a riot. Mickey provides plenty of laughs by breaking every object he can find over anyone's head which passes him by. A first rate comedy all the way!
