[They have arrived at a clearing up in the mountains]
Isn't this ideal?
It sure is. One month up here and we wouldn't know each other. We've got a well and water and lots of it and everything.
Go in and ask the folks if they mind if we park here.
[Stan goes up to the door, knocks on it, it opens and the building is empty]
Not now but there was a minute ago.
Who was it?
It was me. You see I was knocking on the door and...

Good Comedy With One of Their Most Hilarious Scenes
This is a good Laurel & Hardy short comedy, with one particularly hilarious sequence. With Ollie suffering from too much high living, the two take a trip to the country to live the simple life for a while, but instead they find themselves getting into one caper after another. After some adventures of their own, they encounter a pair of stranded motorists. Their extended squabble with Charlie Hall in the last part of the film is non-stop laughs, and one of their funniest sequences. That, and plenty of other laughs in the rest of the film, make "Them Thar Hills" one of the best-remembered Laurel & Hardy short features.
