This was the only Laurel and Hardy short that could be called a sequel. Here the owners of the grocery store next to Stan and Ollie's new electrical shop are the same Mr and Mrs Hall who stopped in at Stan and Ollie's trailer in the mountains when their car broke down in Them Thar Hills (1934). (Other than this coincidence, there is no other connection between the two stories.) See more »
Good morning officer.
Good morning. Well, open for business, eh?
Yes, sir. We would have opened yesterday; but, my partner had a nervous breakdown.

This movie perfectly shows the reasons why I like Laurel & Hardy pictures so much. It has got a great silly story, well timing and some great comical moments, all perfectly executed by the characters.
The story is very, very simple but it works oh so well and is oh so strong. Basically the movie is about Stan and Olie, who just opened an electrical repair store, having a small war with their neighbor the grocer. Basically the movie is about the two parties taking constantly revenge on the other, in a comical hilarious way. This movie is a direct (and the only) sequel to a previous Laurel & Hardy movie, namely; "Them Thar Hills".
The returning joke of the costumer who robs the store every time Laurel & Hardy went away is absolutely hilarious.
The simple story of the movie is extremely well executed and makes this movie one of the most enjoyable Laurel & Hardy shorts.
