Going All Over Town for fun
24 October 2017 | by jadzia92See all my reviews

Released in 1937, All Over Town starred Ole Olsen and Chic Johnson well as Olsen and Johnson. Running for little over an hour All Over Town is fun enough to pass the time if nothing serious is happening in the viewer's life. Watching this movie alone Olsen and Johnson makes for a good comedy act. Lot of funny moments All Over Town produces. All this gets culminated when the pair had to reveal the name of a murderer on live radio. There was certainly fun hijinks before this revelation was made. While the humour is not one that would necessarily all over town it is good for this viewer's home.
