Among the Worst Roach Movies
20 July 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Well, some of the original Lonesome Lukes are pretty awful, and a couple of the Stan Laurel one-reelers are pretty bad too -- there's one in which the humor consists of everyone being Irish and bashing each other with bricks. But once you get past the initial gag in this movie, which is a typical piece of Del Lord destroying automobiles amusingly, this, the nominal last of the Taxi Boys series has Billy Gilbert going to a taxidermy shop -- he doesn't know the difference -- and getting involved with a twitchy Ben Blue in a scare-the-comics routine. Billy does some of his sneezing routine, but it doesn't look like they intended it for more than filling out a film that was running desperately short.

Bad story line, bad continuity and even the special effects are fairly cheesy and obvious. It looks like they had already canceled the series before they made this one of scraps.
