Predictable But Amusing
11 July 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

A mostly predictable but still amusing short comedy, "Gem Jams" stars Leon Errol in one of his henpecked husband roles, caught between his wife and his boss. Leon has been staying out late and using business as an excuse, so his suspicious wife decides to spy on him. As it happens, that night his boss wants him to go to a nice hotel and meet a client, who turns out to be an attractive woman. When everyone shows up at the hotel looking for him, Leon has his hands full trying to stay out of trouble. Errol carries a fairly predictable story with his body movements and expressions, and most of it works pretty well.
