Kinda cute....
25 March 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Snug in the Jug" starts off very oddly...which is good since it's a comedy. Clark & McCullough are getting out of prison and saying goodbye to their old friend, the Warden. Seeing the Warden crying and wishing the boys could stay was rather cute. On their way out, the Warden suggests the boys look for Slug Mullen, the crook, as there's a reward for his capture.

While the pair are out tacking up wanted posters for Slug, they meet Professor Eizenkopf, a famous German criminologist and the three soon become very chummy...so much so that the Professor invites them to a fancy party. But, soon after, Slug captures the Professor and dons a disguise to look like Eizenkopf...and Clark & McCullough soon arrive to go with him to the party! What's next? See the film...and the really weird ending!

I think the jokes in this Clark & McCullough comedy were okay but what I really liked was how quickly the duo became pals with a warden and a criminologist...clever and most unusual. Worth seeing.
