Beauty and the Bus (1933)

** (out of 4)

Hal Roach comedy has Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly attending a theater where a car is given away in a lottery. Of course the two end up winning after causing trouble inside the theater but even more trouble follows when they try to get the car home. I'm really torn when it comes to these Todd-Kelly pictures because some are good, others bad and some are just downright annoying. I think my biggest problem with the bland ones is that there's really no good writing but instead we get some lame jokes that are never funny. The big joke here is that Kelly can't keep from running her mouth, which just gets the duo in one mess after another. This includes running her mouth to a cop, which ends up getting them a ticket. After a small wreck Kelly begins to run her mouth, which ends up causing a major traffic jam. I'm really hit and miss on Kelly's type of humor and it just didn't work for me here. I didn't find her funny but just annoying. As usual, Todd is certainly very graceful and steals the film but she doesn't get too much to do here. Eddie Baker gets a couple decent scenes as the motorcycle cop and Roach creation Tiny Sandford has one brief scene but adds very little.
