A ton of entertainment
27 November 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The three extremely obese men in this film were billed for years as "Ton of Fun" and the men made quite a few silent comedies (including several with Larry Semon), though few remain today. I've seen one other film they made together and I seriously doubt that there are many more out there, as nitrate stock degraded over the years and most silent films no longer exist.

The guys are home builders and their work is even worse than you might expect from Laurel and Hardy or the Three Stooges. While the home looks just awful, the home owner doesn't seem all that alarmed--that is until a man tells them they built it on the wrong lot! The film abounds with pratfalls and slapstick. Despite their girth, the trio are very physical in their humor and the film also is quite clever--with lots of laughs and one of the most elaborate stunts you'll ever see in a silent. And, fortunately, the film ends on a very high note--making it a must-see for fans of silent comedy.
