A Most Enjoyable Short Film For Boxing Fans
28 June 2003 | by (West Palm Beach, FL) – See all my reviews

I have recently started enjoying older movies of the past 100 years, and came across this interesting short on TCM. I thought it to be more like an episode from a potential TV series in the 40's or 50's. The acting, while certainly not of Oscar contention, it fun and harmless. It was interesting to see the light hearted slapstick humor used with real ex-boxers turned "actors". No big entertainment value here, except a "feel good" impression after seeing it. In the era of realism or big budget special effects of today's movies, it's nice to find comfort and refuge in mindless, light hearted slapstick shorts such as Slapsie Maxie's. Any movie that can leave me with a smile on my face at the end of watching it gets a vote from me!

8 out 10 ***
