Buster Keaton has made many iconic film moments but none of them are hidden here. He clowns as much as he can but as this is a talkie, the script keeps getting in the way of the gags.
I guess it’s maybe not all that bad for it’s time but Jimmy looks like he’s trying to hard and the others are just manic background. I wanted to fast forward a lot and that’s not a good sign.
Sometimes felt like a less joke filled Marx Brothers movies and when Buster get’s his prat-fall on it’s comfortably funny but only for those that like the old-movies already.
Watchability (once, twice, etc.)
Watch if on TV?
Hug, Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Sorry, Buster, but it’s an Avoid from me.
