Barely watchable early talkie

The best thing about "Dumb Dicks" is the length. It is only 18 minutes of your life that you will never get back.

Rubin and Gribbon are so inept as the title characters, and so monumentally unfunny, that it makes you appreciate the true greats like Laurel & Hardy all the more.

The sequence where the 2 PDs pretend to be Turkish mystics is especially bad. As in 'could they be more stupid and offensive' bad. Who wrote the moronic dialogue they were spouting? About the only section that wasn't entirely excruciating was the opening sequence in the bank, partially because of the gun-play overkill, and partially due to a couple of interesting extras. It caused me to give this disaster an extra star.

Once the action leaves the bank...ugh.
