Bland For Quite a While, Then Picks Up
5 July 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Parlor, Bedroom, & Bath" combines Buster Keaton's comic skills with a decent supporting cast and a light-hearted story about tangled romances. The first half is mostly bland, but things pick up later in the movie.

Jeff wants to marry his sweetheart Virginia, but Virginia refuses to get married until her fussy, spinsterish older sister Angie gets married first. When Jeff runs into (literally) mild-mannered nonentity Reggie Irving (Keaton), he decides to pass off Irving as a notorious playboy, to arouse Angie's interest. The plot also involves some other characters and their own romantic difficulties, and the build-up goes on for too long. It is all rather slow-going for much of the film, with the only laughs coming when Keaton gets an occasional chance to display his non-verbal comic ability. The part worth waiting for comes in the second half, when all of the characters converge on a hotel, in a lengthy and pretty good comic sequence.

Overall, it's not much when compared with Keaton's silent films. But if you watch, make sure to stick around for the last half of the film, when things get a lot funnier.
