Not particularly funny--and that's bad when it is supposed to be a comedy.
2 August 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

As the other review states, this is an excellent quality print--especially for a silent film.

The film begins with Snub Pollard employed as a House Detective at a hotel. However, he makes a nuisance of himself and is rightfully fired. Why, then, moments later does the ex-boss make him a fire inspector working for the hotel, I have no idea--a serious weakness of the film.

As a fire inspector, Snub is over-zealous and once again, gets himself into trouble. However, one situation that he's not responsible for is a crazed husband out to kill him because the old fire inspector was flirting with the man's wife. This results in some chases and the old cliché of wildly firing a gun (where, of course, no one is hit). This scene of a man firing madly was common in older Sennett comedies, so I am surprised that as late as 1926 anyone was still doing this.

When a real fire breaks out, Snub runs to the scene and the angry husband is soon forgotten. Snub's efforts to put out the fire are really lame and the film, thankfully, ends.

Sadly, while Snub could be very funny, the Weiss Brothers comedies I've seen that he's made look as if the studio was using third-rate gag men as writers. FIRE!! doesn't seem to have a single genuine laugh and I was amazed at how so much potential was wasted.
