Wacky, Audacious Comedy with Charley Chase as a Man Bride
21 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Charley Chase's comedy shorts are always enjoyable and among the best two-reel comedies. MR. BRIDE is one of his funniest, even if it is perilously close to a one-gag picture. That one gag is played to perfection however by all involved.

Charley's boss is all-business, even when it comes to romance. He plans to propose to a young woman and wants to make sure he will be at a success at being a "husband" so he decides to practice - with Charley as his wife!!! He makes Charley accompany him on his business trip where he repeatedly puts poor Charley in situations in public where he is perceived to be the boss man's "spouse", even to the point where he introduces Charley to people as his wife and calls him sweet endearments in front of other people! A high point of the absurdity is a restaurant scene where he lovingly feeds Charley the cherry of his dessert with Charley squirming all the way! What makes the film quite racy is the fact that no one who witnesses the "love birds" in action is aware it's just a "practice run" - clearly everyone presumes they are a gay couple which is quite an outrageous comic gag for a 1932 film. Indeed, when Charley and boss get to their hotel suite one wonders just how far the boss will take this illusion! Fortunately, the real little woman shows up in the nick of time and much to Charley's dismay, it's a girl he himself fancies. Who will the real girl choose - Charley or his boss? Heck, one might even say the question is who will the boss choose, the girl or Charley! This is one of the most hilarious short films I've ever seen and kudos to Charley Chase for the daring situations (certainly for the era) he was willing to go into for a laugh.
