For its Time, Makes Good Use of the Idea
13 June 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

For its time, this Edison comedy makes good use of the familiar idea of a romantic rivalry. The characters are a little plain, but the situation and the gag ideas are enough to carry the movie and to make it amusing most of the time.

Most of the story follows the various dirty tricks that two young men play on each other as they each try to court the same woman. Some of the sequences are pretty good, and it also helps that most of it was filmed outdoors. The movie was based on a comic strip of the era, and one or two of the gags would come off better in a comic, but the rest of it works.

The outcome is rather predictable, but it is funny enough anyway. The lively nature of the movie makes up for its little shortcomings, and it is at least average for a comedy of the era.
