Apart from the annoying parrot, a nice little film
"The Big Noise" is a nice little B-movie and is not to be confused by the movie of the same name by Laurel & Hardy. Despite its short runtime (57 minutes) and relatively small budget, it's a very satisfying and enjoyable little comedy.
The film begins with the head of a manufacturing company (Guy Kibbee) being forced out by the board. He's still quite rich and is convinced by his wife to retire to California. However, he's bored to death and decides to find SOMETHING to do and so he buys a half interest in a cleaning company. However, he and his new partner don't realize that mobsters working a protection racket have set their sights on the company. So what are they to do in this clever comedy? Tune in for yourself and see.
Aside from a super-annoying parrot that isn't necessary for the movie, this is a very well written and, above all, fun movie. A nice little comedy--one that seems best suited for Kibbee and his talents.
