Storyline

As a young married couple are bringing home a jug of bootleg liquor, the wife stops to do some shopping. In the meantime, the husband meets his brother-in-law, who asks him to look after his two children for a while. The husband reluctantly takes the children home, where he and his wife find it very difficult to keep them out of trouble or harm. The husband encounters a series of mishaps in hiding his liquor and in getting milk for the youngest child. To make things even worse, a neighbor warns them that there is a burglar loose in the neighborhood. Written by Snow Leopard

Rather predictable.
11 April 2006 | by kyratSee all my reviews

The plot is predictable and thus (to me) not that amusing. There were some nice touches, (like what turned out to really be in the baby carriage!)

The animation at the beginning was quite clever. Not being a film historian I don't know how common animation was at the time, but I liked it's inclusion in a live action short.

I would recommend other Harold Lloyd films instead, such as "Number, Please" or "Bumping Into Broadway".

I have nothing more to say, please change the minimum line requirement to something that rewards, not punishes brevity!
