Decent Zasu/Todd Short
20 February 2011 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Pajama Party, The (1931)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent Zasu/Todd short has the girls driving out to the country where they're going to meet their boyfriends the next day but a society woman accidentally drives them off the road. Feeling bad the woman invites the friends back out to her place where she's throwing a party and of course chaos breaks out. This certainly isn't the greatest Hal Roach short out there but there are enough decent laughs to make it worth sitting through if you're a fan of the series. The majority of the comedy comes from Zasu not knowing how to act around rich people and Todd taking several falls. One of the highlights is when Todd goes to get into the shower but when she walks in she ends up falling down because it's actually a bath. Todd gets a couple good moments but for the most part this film belongs to Zasu as most of the comedy centers around her. This includes a funny bit where her boyfriend puts a baby turtle in her shirt, which makes her do some funny stuff including pushing people into a pool. Another nice gag has her seeing a "game" where one man bends over why everyone comes up and kicks him. Zasu then starts doing this to whoever she sees bending over.
