Well executed but unexceptional one-reeler about a couple of incompetent paperhangers. James Parrott, brother of Charley Chase, was an equally skilled man behind the camera,p. He later wrote and directed some of Roach's best two-reelers, before he died too young. Yet while the gags here are well done, he never really developed much of a personality in these pieces and they are not, somehow, quite as sharp as the stuff he was co-starring in with Sid Saylor two or three years before. The extended gag with the plank of wood seesawing is typical.

Of course it's also a pleasure to look at Jobyna Ralston as the girl in these pieces. She was James' co-star before she replaced Mildred Davis as Harold Lloyd's better half on the screen -- although Miss Davis married her co-star.
