Hamateur Night (1939)

** (out of 4)

The Warner Bros. hit FOUR DAUGHTERS is playing at the local theater and the manager has decided to have an amateur night where local talent can come and show off their talents. The only problem is that the people who have shown up have very little talent.

There are a few funny gags to be had in this animated short but for the most part this one complete misses the mark. The animation itself is quite good and I thought the hippo in the crowd laughing and causing trouble was mildly funny. Everything else was rather dull and didn't contain enough laughs to keep this short entertaining throughout the running time. The film isn't horrible but with so many better films out there there's not a point in watching this one.
