Just a Minute (1924)

*** (out of 4)

Jimmy Jump (Charley Chase) is all set to marry his fiancé (Blanche Mehaffey) but his boss asks him to take a car over to a sure buyer for a quick test drive. The man ends up taking three tests drives and the trouble then starts as the bride-to-be waits for Jimmy to return for the wedding. This third film in the series gets off to a very funny start with Jimmy being the nice guy by fixing a kid's slingshot only to have the jerk then shoot him with it. From here on it's all laughs as the family he's trying to sell the car to turns out to be the last people on earth you'd want to have to work with. Not only does the father want one more test drive after another but the entire thing takes an even worse turn when they decide to have a picnic while the bride-to-be just sits around. What makes this film so funny isn't just the action of the slingshot or the punch Chase takes to the face but it's in his wonderful facial gestures as he keeps growing impatient of not being able to get to his wedding. The scenes with Chase's frustration growing and growing are priceless as is the wonderful way he roles his eyes in disgust. Mehaffey doesn't get as much to do here as she's pretty much just standing on the corner. The final joke in the film works quite well and overall this is a pleasant one-reeler.
