Weak Bergen and McCarthy
22 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Neckin' Party, A (1937)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Edgar Bergen and his dummy Charlie McCarthy are up to their old tricks in this Warner short. This time out the duo travel to Bergen's hometown where a woman begins to flirt with Charlie and this doesn't sit too well with her crazy boyfriend who wants to hang the dummy by his neck. This is a pretty bad short that I doubt even fans of the duo will enjoy. They've always been hit and miss with me but this one here is without question the worst I've seen from them. The biggest problem is that the short appears to be missing any type of actual story. We have a beginning and an ending but it appears everything in the middle is just missing and in the end the entire film doesn't make much sense. The jokes are pretty bland, the settings boring and there isn't a laugh to be had anywhere. Puppet Elmer Mortimer also appears here and at least contains a little life to gets things moving.
