Fair At Best; Does Have a Couple of Good Moments
17 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

After a pretty slow start, this somewhat chaotic short comedy has a few good moments. Overall, it's only fair at best, but it does have a couple of funny parts. It starts off with an unnecessarily long sequence that makes little sense and that is not particularly entertaining, and which has the sole purpose of setting up the entrance of the 'Ton of Fun' trio. The three of them play a night club singing act that gets into a fracas with the patrons, and from there at least the pace picks up quite a bit.

While in general it's too silly and lowbrow to come off very well, there are a couple of creative gags, and a clever camera shot or two at the height of the action. Those occasional pluses keep it from being a complete washout. It might not look so bad when compared with some of today's tasteless 'comedies', but if you compare it with its 1920's contemporaries, it doesn't hold up very well.
