Harry Langdon made some lovely silent comedies back in the 1920s. Much of the reason his films worked out well during this era is that they were directed by Frank Capra. However, Langdon made a big mistake when he left the studio in search of more money and control over his films. What followed were years of mediocre or lousy comedies--culminating with his going to work for Columbia Pictures, a studio that made a ton of third-rate comedy shorts. So far, none of these latter films have impressed me...perhaps "Sue My Lawyer" will change my mind.

Harry is an idiot lawyer who thinks he can help the police solve cases. For his trouble, he literally gets tossed out of their office...though a couple crooks inside mistakenly think Harry knows something about them and their criminal enterprises. So, they plan on doing something about it...little does he know!

In addition to some lame gags (the bucket gag was overused by Columbia), the film ends with an annoying courtroom scene. At least Langdon appears consistent...consistently poor in these later films.
