Abbott and Costello are back in their first movie of 1943, and this time, they are really on ice! I just recently saw this movie when I watched it on The Best of Abbott and Costello, Vol. 2, and I was laughing at it! I thought that this was going to be funny, but not like this, I now actually think that this is one of Abbott and Costello's funniest!
In this movie, Abbott and Costello are accused of robbery and in an attempt to get away from the authorities, hide out on a train, but not before we see the infamous getting packed and unpacked routine, this is where is Abbott is going back and forth about deciding wherever or not they should skip town, while poor Costello keeps packing and unpacking a suitcase!
This movie will leave you in stitches, you will split your sides when you see Lou Costello on an ice skating rink, and when you see the getting packed and unpacked routine! You also are really going to love the ski chase near the end of the film, that one can't hold a candle to several of the ski chases I saw in a few of the James Bond films, but the one in this movie is totally a riot!
