Amazingly familiar but funny
31 August 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This film features Laurel and Hardy in a very familiar plot. As is often the case, the boys go out to play and lie to the wives about it--with disastrous results. This type of situation was featured in several films made by the team (such as THEIR PURPLE MOMENT and BLOTTO) and was remade very closely in SONS OF THE DESERT. In fact, after Laurel and Hardy, this same plot was reworked on "The Honeymooners" and even "The Flintstones"!

In this film, Stan and Ollie go out for a good time and meet two ladies who eventually ask them back to their apartment. What they don't know is that the wives suspect the boys are playing around and one of the lady has a boyfriend who is a professional boxer! The wives actually catch them in the act but Stan and Ollie don't know it--and there is a very, very long segment where the boys make up lie after lie to explain themselves. This leads to an expectedly violent confrontation. The end was cute and repeated very closely in BLOCKHEADS. While there's a lot of familiar material in this short, it is very well done and funny.
