Has Some Material That Works Very Well
14 October 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This uneven Charley Chase short feature is still well worth seeing for the parts that do work well, because there are a handful of very good gags that make up for the slower stretches. With Eugene Palette, Oliver Hardy, and Martha Sleeper in the supporting cast, there is also no shortage of talent on hand.

The first part of the movie has only a few good moments, although Palette tries to help out in this part. The sequence inside the department store just doesn't work well enough to justify all the time spent on it. The sequences in the club work better, especially with the various costumes that are used creatively. Hardy's character allows him some good moments, and it is pretty interesting to see him use a couple of the same mannerisms that are more familiar from pictures with Stan Laurel, even though here he plays a much different kind of character.

Once it hits its stride, it moves pretty well, and there is enough good material here to make "Fluttering Hearts" worthwhile.
