The Three Keatons reunited.
2 May 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Buster Keaton's career as a performer comes full circle in this free wheeling little comedy which unites him with his mother, father and sister, all together for the only time on screen. Though produced very cheaply at the nadir of Buster's career this is another occasion where Buster pulled out the stops and managed to make an at least sporadically hilarious film. Perhaps working alongside his family perked him up, but he really seems to enjoy himself in this one and in it's unassuming way it's funnier than anything he did at MGM after Spite Marriage.

Fans will be a little taken aback by his appearance in this, both he and his father sport the most ridiculous beards, and `rube' accents as they portray a family next to whom the Beverley Hillbillies look sophisticated.

Adding a surrealistic touch to this virtually plot less romp all four Keaton's play with stone faces, and there's a real delight in watching them play off each other especially the scenes with Buster and Joe where Buster is clearly cracking the old man up.

Along with Allez Oop and Grand Slam Opera, proof that comic genius can survive just about anything.
