One of the Weaker Entries

So You're Having Neighbor Trouble (1954)

** (out of 4)

Weaker entry in the series has Joe McDoakes and his neighbors Marvin and Mr. Grogan in front of a judge after all three had a fight. It turns out Marvin was putting his trash in Joe's cans and Mr. Grogan was having loud parties but when Joe refused to call the cops this backfired. That's pretty much the only "story" here in this rather disappointing entry. It's a real shame this one didn't work very well because normally you had a great comedy on your hands when they teamed up George O'Hanlon and Rodney Bell who plays Marvin. The two had a wonderful chemistry that usually resorted in many big laughs but that's not the case here because the screenplay is pretty flat and nothing funny ever happens. The entire plot with Marvin using Joe's trash cans is just poorly written and doesn't contain a single laugh. The segment with the party isn't much better. The McDoakes series had a few minor entries and this here is certainly one of them so those new to the series will want to check out a different film.
