How You Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm?
28 November 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Roach's 'The Girl Friends' series plods on with Patsy Kelly taking the place of Zasu Pitts and with second-string director Gus Meins helming the venture. The result is a decent little comedy short with plenty of funny gags, but without, alas, the warmth and chemistry that Miss Pitts was able to bring to her relationship to Miss Todd. Besides the chemistry between Miss Pitts and Miss Todd, their characters were clearly differentiated, Zasu shy and awkward, Thelma brash. Thelma tones it down a bit here, but Patsy Kelly had only one setting.

Yet they are both excellent comedians, they are willing to do all sorts of physical stunts and the gag-writing at Roach was top-notch. The result is a good comedy -- not a great one, alas, but you can't win them all with your second string team.
