"The Little Pest" is an enjoyable little silent comedy starring Neely Edwards. In many ways, it's like a Charley Chase short--and Neely looks a bit like him. The film begins with a newlywed couple getting a visit from her obnoxious family. They ask if they can leave their little boy with them for a while and they agree--not knowing that the child is a pest. Throughout the rest of the day, the boy destroys everything, is very rude and blames it all on his new uncle.
I've seen a few other similar comedies and this one is about average for this sort of thing--no better, no worse. On the plus side, the kid is great at being a brat. On the negative, sometimes Neely's antics are overdone--no one is THAT clumsy and stupid. Decent overall and worth seeing.
