Oddball Spoof of Gangster/Immigrant Movie Falls Flat
21 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Benny Rubin -- playing a dual role of "Little Sizzer" and his brother "JULIUS SIZZER" dodges gangsters trying to take him for a ride and put him on the spot. Will both brothers survive the movie, or will dreadful puns destroy their careers before the end of the movie? This one gets points for subject matter outside the usual two reel idiom -- what other slapstick two reeler features a nice Jewish Boy from Ellis Island. Also, Rubin's Edward G. Robinson spoof is really pretty funny. The problem is that Rubin's good character is as whiny as Woody Allen without the redeeming funny jokes. And the physical stuff mostly does not work. The material does not appeal today, and I doubt it appealed to the majority of audience back then, who would have little knowledge of genuine Jewish comedy.

Fans of two reelers might want to give this a look to see something a little (but not really enough) different. Others should avoid.
