Hollywood Comes to Flip's

Soda Squirt (1933)

*** (out of 4)

Flip the Frog opens a new soda joint and all the top stars in Hollywood come out to enjoy it.

This entry in the Flip series from Ub Iwerks isn't the funniest or best but it remains entertaining thanks in large part to the various celebrities who appear. These include Laurel and Hardy, Jimmy Durante, Buster Keaton, the Marx Brothers and Mae West. Film buffs should have a good time with this animated short since some very familiar faces appear. I wouldn't say any of the characterizations are great but they're at least entertaining. There's some fun creative stuff that happens when the restaurant gets torn apart that helps to keep it moving along.
