A must for anyone who wants an example of a comedy that's just wonderfully ridiculous, "Six of a Kind" is a road-trip movie that's absolute nonsense.
Ruggles and Boland make you laugh at them, with them, and for them; Burns and Allen take silly to a new level; and Fields and Skipworth show up later in the game to round out this sextette of psychos. Fields' billiard scene (reworked from one of his earlier films) is not to be missed.
