Stan Laurel suggested the ending, because his daughter was upset that Oliver Hardy was always hurting him. The tables were turned and Stan hurts Ollie, as a way to explain to her that they were "only pretending to hurt each other" See more »
Now I see it all.
"What". Don't try to alibi. You know you stole this money from that old lady. Why guilt is written all over you.
What do you mean?

L&H set out to raise $100 when they overhear an elderly woman say she's going to be evicted. Not too many laughs in this one outside the opening sequence in the woods.
Leave 'Em Laughing (1928)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
Laurel is suffering from a toothache so Hardy takes him to the dentist who accidentally fills them with laughing gas. The early gags of Hardy trying to pull the tooth are funny but the ending with the cars goes on a bit too long and gets rather tiresome.
They Go Boom! (1929)
*** (out of 4)
Hardy has a cold so it's up to Laurel to try and find a cure so that they can get a good night's sleep. Highlights include the mustard bath and the exploding mattress.
Thicker Than Water (1935)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
Laurel and Hardy waste $300 on a grandfather clock so Hardy's wife hits him with a frying pan and sends him to the hospital. Again, not too funny and the worst part is the ending where the two change personalities. This here should have been a lot funnier than it turned out.
