I agree...dumb but funny.
12 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

If you are looking for an intellectual comedy, "Here Comes Flossie!" is not for you. The film is pretty dumb...and you'll hate yourself for laughing anyway!

A farmer brings in his two sons to tell them he appreciates their hard work and wants to reward them with $50 each--to spend any way they like. One announces he's buying a mail order bride, the other (Shemp Howard) a prize cow (to each his own, I guess). The problem is no one knows that the woman AND the cow are both named Flossie...which creates a problem for their handyman (Ben Blue), as he's told to take Flossie into the stable and bathe her...but it's the woman. And, when the cow arrives, it's much the same sort of confusion. Dopey...but also moderately funny at the same time. Not a must-see film but harmless fun from Vitaphone.
