It has a lot of energy and is fun, but it also lacks cohesion
13 May 2007 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a cute movie with several funny scenes. However, the overall theme of the film (Charley Chase playing Romeo on stage with his fiancée) gets lost and only reappears at the end--making the film appear to lack cohesion. It was as if the film started and ended with this theme, but everything in the middle seemed unrelated and were just contrived gags. You know this isn't Chase's "A" material when the highlight is his doing a drunk shtick. This wasn't Chase's forte and it seemed a bit forced and unfunny. Still, for lovers of silent cinema, this IS worth seeing. However, for non-fans, this short most likely won't change your opinion of the genre. Only slightly above average.
