The owners of a movie studio are having problems with a temperamental director, and they promise an actor on one of his pictures that he can have the job if he can find a way to make the director leave the picture.
Extremely funny Roach comedy has Jimmy Jump (Charley Chase) waking up late for his wedding so in the mad rush he ends up leaving his house only dressed in his pajamas. As he makes his way to the church he finds one disaster after another. As I make my way through the Jimmy Jump series I must admit that I found a few more weaker ones than I expected but this one here is a real gem that contains plenty of big laughs in its short 9-minute running time. The best moments happen when a cop tries to arrest Jimmy but he keeps managing to hide at the right time only to then lose his hiding place in a series of great gags. Another excellent sequence involves Jimmy playing the husband to a different woman, which ends up getting him chased by three men all with guns. This leads to a very funny ending with a nice little twist that I won't ruin. Chase is at the top of his game here as he really does a great job with this character and brings plenty of laughs. The supporting cast works great as well and they all make for a nice little film.
