Another One Of Abbott And Costello's Best Movies!, 22 April 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

Here is another Abbott and Costello movie that I had seen at one point in my life and really loved, mainly due to the fact that it has got some really funny routines, especially the "Who's on First?" skit, because this is the one that we had all be waiting to here, Abbott and Costello's funniest routine, he finally get to hear it in full, get ready to laugh! This is also one of Abbott and Costello's funniest movies that they ever put out, other funny ones that I really like are Buck Privates, Buck Privates Come Home, Hold That Ghost, I would name more if I could, but I won't.

I have seen a lot of movies from the Perfect Straight-Man and the Perfect Buffoon, but I have not seen to many of their films from the mid 1940's, the only other one I had seen was Here Come the Co-Eds, and that one was really funny. But this film is even funnier than Here Come the Co-Ed's, perhaps that is because of the "Who on First?" routine that is in this film! Abbott and Costello have really got some funny routines in this movie besides "Who's on First?"

This is another movie that all fans of the Perfect Straight-Man and the Perfect Buffoon really must see, because it is going to cause you so split your sides with laughter!

10/10
