So You Want to Move (1950)

*** (out of 4)

Funny entry in the series has Alice going away for a week to WAC camp and at the house are some movers who are going to move her and Joe three blocks. Joe is fine with this until he learns it will be $150 so he fires them and decides to save money by moving himself but of course things don't go as planned. This here is without question one of the most predictable in a predictable series (since the title gives everything away) but there are plenty of big laughs. The highlight of the film is a running, calculated total that pops up on screen every time something goes wrong. This is a simple little gag as all the accidents quickly surpass the original $150 price tag. As usual George O'Hanlon is at the top of his game as he delivers one laugh after another with those priceless facial gestures and funny mannerisms. Also hilarious is Rodney Bell who plays the nearly-blind neighbor Marv who helps with the move. The comedy with him is pretty politically incorrect but it's still very funny.
