18 Minutes Short that Begins Funny but Becomes Boring
2 November 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The prankster Bob (Bob Hope) is traveling to New York by ship with his girlfriend and he proposes to marry her. Along the trip, he plays pranks on the captain, passengers and his future father-in-law.

When they arrive in the harbor, the captain and his father-in-law decide to revenge and the captain asks his men to retain bob at the customs for hours. Then he heads to the office of his father-in-law where his girlfriend is waiting for him. But her father is still upset with Bob.

"Watch the Bridie" is a 18 minutes short that begins funny, with the annoying little girl and the jokes of Bob. However, when he arrives at the custom, the story loses the pace and becomes boring. My vote is five.
