I`m in two minds about this Stan & Ollie short . While it`s far less episodic than some of their other stuff like THICKER THAN WATER - And watching these shorts many many years after I last saw them I found their episodic feel is a major problem to today`s audience - it`s not all that funny compared to most of their other stuff mainly due to nothing ultra sadistic happening . I`ve always thought the best films in the series are ones when something really nasty happens to Ollie while Stan just stands there with a vacant glazed look upon his face. One other point I didn`t like was the irritating voice over given to Ollie`s wife who`s played by Stan
