Storyline

Mickey's a shovel operator and laborer at a construction site; Minnie is delivering box lunches; Pete is the foreman. Mickey pays more attention to Minnie than to his work, and keeps having accidents (mostly involving the blueprints Pete is holding). Pete steals Mickey's lunch, so Minnie offers him one on the house. While he's eating, Pete kidnaps Minnie; Mickey fights him, but the tide turns when Minnie dumps a load of hot rivets into Pete's pants. They run, and Pete chases them, causing a great deal of damage to the site. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Marvelously inventive film that takes full advantage of its construction-site setting for gags and thrills
6 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mickey Mouse operates a steam shovel; Pegleg Pete is his foreman; Minnie Mouse sells box lunches. Mickey must save the day when Pete makes advances to Minnie.

"Building a Building" is a marvelously inventive film that takes full advantage of its construction-site setting for gags and thrills. Heroic little Mickey is utterly sympathetic as the adversary of the brutish Pete, even though the mouse's careless work habits (he's so focused on Minnie that he accidentally throws dirt and bricks on Pete) give his boss good reason to be angry with him.

Pete's attempts to kiss an unwilling Minnie remind us of how Mickey has changed in a few short years. In "Plane Crazy" (1928), it was Mickey trying to force himself on her. She even had to jump out of his plane to escape him.
