Not exactly terrible, but the film sure tried WAY too hard to be kooky.
"The Town Went Wild" is a low-budget B-movie that tries way too hard. Its plot has MANY holes and the film too many cheap laughs to take very seriously or to recommend. And, perhaps this is why the film is in the public domain.
Edward Everett Horton and Tom Tully play obnoxious neighbors who have been feuding in suburbia for ages. Little do they know that their kids are planning on eloping. However, everything gets really complicated when the man in charge of the records office makes a discovery--the men's two sons were apparently switched at the hospital. So, the young couple turn out to be brother and sister! Fortunately, the marriage hadn't yet taken place, but the marriage license IS on record and both angry fathers agree, for the first time, to work together.
The film abounds with kooky plot twists and much of the humor hinges on Tully and Horton screaming--and this gets old after a while. There are some good actors in this film but the writing is inconsistent and full of dumb coincidences to take very seriously. If you don't mind a bad film, give it a try....just don't say I didn't warn you.
