Even worse than "Free and Easy"
9 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hadn't thought it possible for anybody to put Buster into a film more inane and humiliating than "Free and Easy", but I stand corrected. I had to force myself to sit through it, in the mostly vain hope that Keaton would sooner or later give me something worth watching. And it does show up -- that moment -- in the middle of an otherwise grim song-and-dance routine with Elsie Ames. But the moment ends quickly, and we're back to Buster playing somebody so clueless he makes Rain Man look as canny as a Mafia don.

I can't fathom what it is about this film that makes people pick it out as one of the better (or perhaps less dreary) of the Columbia shorts. "Mooching Through Georgia" is actually fun, and "She's Oil Mine" and "The Taming of the Snood" are the others most likely to give Keaton fans something they can watch without being embarrassed for Buster. This one left a bad taste in my mouth.

I would guess that the dividing line between those who find it palatable and those who find it more of a cinematic emetic would be whether or not the viewer enjoys Three Stooges comedy. If you do, you'll probably like "General Nuisance". If not, spare yourself the ordeal.
