Simple Laurel & Hardy short but has some absolute hilarious moments in it.
27 February 2006 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a very simple made Laurel & Hardy short with an almost non-existent and not that great story. However the gags in the movie are absolutely hilarious and are the reason why this is one of the better Laurel & Hardy comedy shorts.

It's a very consistent movie that remains funny throughout its entire running time. It has some absolute priceless visual jokes in it and a really funny ending.

It's always fun to see Walter Long in a villainous role in any Laurel & Hardy movie, so this one included. He probably is also one of the reasons that makes this movie oh so fun and hilarious to watch. Also a couple of other Laurel & Hardy regulars show up again.

Simple comedy short but the humor in it is absolutely priceless and its timing spot-on!

8/10
