A rare review
25 January 2002 | by (Dixie, USA) – See all my reviews

Well, this is far from classic A&C. Basicly, it's a silly romp with a lot of dumb skits. That being said, I absolutely love this movie. It is a personal sentimental favorite. The use of modern Universal stuntmen to act as the Keystone Cops, and the appearance of Mack Sennett himself make this a movie to treasure. Don't worry about plot. Don't think about how out of place Bud and Lou seem in this. Just sit back and have fun with it. This is strictly a "ride" movie. Take the gags as they come.

All through my years growing up, I always looked forward to my local station cycling around the A&C films to when they would be showing this movie on Sunday morning.
