No classic, but it's not too bad
22 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was one of the two-reelers Buster made for Educational pictures in the thirties. These films were nowhere near as good as his classic work from the twenties, nevertheless they do provide amusing entertainment. In this one Buster is eloping with his sweetheart and unbeknownst to them the shop next door is being burgled. The police arrive looking for the burglars and Buster and his girl mistakenly head off in the cop car. Before long they are being chased, leading to some shenanigans in a farm and with hitch-hiking attempts. This little film is not as bad as some would have you believe and is worth seeing, especially if you're a Buster fan.
