Who takes their mother-in-law on their honeymoon?!
25 January 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have seen nearly all of the surviving Max Linder comedies and have enjoyed them. He was amazingly inventive and when I found one I had not seen ("Max and His Mother-in-Law") I grabbed a copy. Sadly, I was disappointed and it wasn't nearly up to the quality of his other films.

The film begins with Max getting married. In an odd twist, he takes his mother-in-law with them on their honeymoon--something that stretches credibility to the breaking point when it comes to plot! On the honeymoon in the snow-capped mountains, his chunky in-law falls down a lot in the snow and there are a few other pratfalls--but no humor. In fact, I've seen dramas that were funnier than this one. My advice is try another one of his films first--such as "Max Takes Tonics". He was a brilliant pioneer.
