Talk about a weird plot--but it is pretty funny.
10 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Jimmy Jump short has one of the strangest plots I've seen. It seems that Jimmy (Charley Chase) has a chance to earn some money translating the story of "Little Red Riding Hood" into Swedish. But, he cannot afford to buy the book so he connives to read it for free. None of this is super funny until he spots the book in the back seat of a car and begins to read--then the laughs are a plenty--and the plot gets rather dark! "Big Red Riding Hood" has a nice sequence where Jimmy pictures the story in his mind. However, the film really heats up at the end--with a nice chase scene and a few very good laughs. Well worth seeing and like so many of the Jimmy Jump films, it's directed by the great Leo McCarey.
