Fast Company (1924)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Better than average Our Gang short has Mickey trading places with a rich kid who never gets to do anything "fun" due to his boring parents. Mickey gives the rich kid his goat cart and when the gang sees this other kid driving it they want to know what's going on. The gang goes to a rich hotel to look for Mickey and chaos follows. I've found many of these Hal Roach-Our Gang shorts to be lacking in terms of laughs but this one here actually managed to have a few good moments in its 14-minute running time. I think the highlight of the film has to be this goat cart, which is exactly what it sounds like. Another good moment happens once the chaos breaks loose in the hotel with one scene where a kid hides in a shower and surprises a woman getting ready to get in. The film runs about six-minutes shorter than the majority of the films in this series but I must admit that I think the shorter time actually helps everything. It makes the film seem a lot more complete and it doesn't seem as if added non-jokes are here just to expand the running time.
