Storyline

At an exclusive dress shop, Thelma is a model and Zazu is a seamstress. While Thelma models a bridal gown for a wealthy older customer, Zazu makes an unexpected appearance on the walkway, causing havoc and getting the pair fired. After the proprietor calms down, he offers them their jobs back and asks them to deliver two dresses to an important client who's leaving on a midnight trip. Thelma and Zazu decide to wear the dresses to a party before delivering them. Is this a mistake? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Models On A Conveyor Belt
31 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie is full of laughs from start to finish. I have never seen fashion models on a conveyor belt before, which alone was interesting. But you can only imagine the antics that ZaSu Pitts and Thelma Todd get up to on it.

I would have rated it 8/10 except that, like a lot of these shorts, it has a very unsatisfying ending. Nothing is resolved -- they basically just go off into the sunset. I have noticed this in a lot of Three Stooges shorts as well. They run off, or drive off, and the movie just ends.

It makes me wonder if they suffered from the problems I heard about Saturday Night Live: that they never knew how to wrap up a skit.

In spite of this, Maids A La Mode is well worth the eighteen minutes it takes to view.
