Here Comes Trouble (1948)

** (out of 4)

Another in the Hal Roach series featuring Doubleday (William Tracy) and Ames (Joe Sawyer). This time out the two are out of the Army and Doubleday, thanks to his soon to be father in law, is working as a reporter and he tries to crack a big case against a gangster. Ames, working as a policeman, gets in and tries to help but of course chaos follows. I believe this is the fifth film I've seen with the duo and there's no doubt that this one here is the weakest. The previous films were always going for laughs but this one here really seems a tad bit lazy because it seems not much of an effort was given in the screenplay to try and get any laughs. For the most part you get a lot of dialogue and none of its funny. Not because the material bad but because the material doesn't even go for laughs. Tracy is his usual self here but Sawyer seems really bored because his comic flair is never seen, although, to his credit, the screenplay doesn't offer him too much. Another problem is that most of the film's in the series ran from 40-45 minutes but this one here clocks in at 55-minutes and it really feels like 55-hours.
