Surprisingly bland
16 November 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Given the talent here -- Billies Gilbert and Bletcher in front of the camera, Charley Chase behind it -- this is a surprisingly dull short comedy from Roach, as the Billies play stock German dialectician comics going out for a night at a nightclub. Chase directs competently, but nothing really surprisingly funny ever happens -- perhaps there was no sense of any real character on the part of anyone involved.

There are some interesting shots, particularly the low-shot view of the floor show, and this is not a waste of time -- both Billies were good dialect comedians and quite capable of doing the standard routines more than competently. It's just that it's been done as well or better far too many times.
