Mama Loves Papa is an entry in Hal Roach's The Boy Friends series. Among the stars are occasional W.C. Fields stooge Grady Sutton and a couple of former original Our Gangers Mickey Daniels and Mary Kornman, here playing brother and sister. The plot concerns Daniels and Kornman's mother about to marry another brother and sister's father. To keep this from happening, both pair siblings try to convince the others' parents that they're crazy. What follows are various gags that, typical for '30 comedies especially for Hal Roach, involve making yourself look tiny, pretending to chop sibling's head, and hanging from a chandelier! After all this is cleared up, one of the adult children finds a pastor to marry the new stepparents but this results in a twist you may guess if you're familiar with many of these sitcom-like plots over the years but I won't reveal here! Funny short from beginning to end and well directed by former Laurel and Hardy cameraman George Stevens. By all means, seek this out!
