Just Neighbors (1919)

** (out of 4)

Harold Lloyd and 'Snub' Pollard play friends and neighbors who are constantly helping one another but their friendship turns out anger when Pollard's chickens break free and end up ruining the garden of Lloyd's wife (Bebe Daniels). Fans of the two stars will certainly want to see this film but sadly it's not quite as funny as some of the previous films that they made together at Rolin. I think there's just too much going on here and none of it is all that funny. There are some good bits and pieces scattered around but just not enough to make this a complete winner. I think some of the best stuff happens early on when Lloyd is in line for something but keeps getting pushed around and pushed back in line. Another funny bit happens when Lloyd goes to help Pollard with a chicken coop but things don't go as planned. From here on out we get several bits of slapstick but none of it really jumps off the screen or comes to life. There's a long running gag involving a water hose that just doesn't work and there's no question that the two stars are just trying to do anything for a laugh.
