Not One of the Boys' Best.
21 June 2009 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

This is one of Laurel and Hardy's weaker efforts with only limited laughs and some horrendous dubbing of female voices for the characters of Stan and Ollie's sisters (played by Stan and Ollie). There's also something a little unsettling about each of them being married to their friend's identical twin sister...

The funniest moments come in the earlier part of this 20-minute short when the boys are at work and taking part in their usual tit-for-tat abuse - Ollie blowing ink down the phone in an attempt to spray Stan only to receive it in his own face gets the biggest laugh. The rest of the film is amusing enough but never comes close to the heights of their better shorts.
