Another Fine Mess (1930)


This a Covid-19 2021 minireview!

“There’s a picture I must show you. That’s a gondola going through the Panama Canal – in Venice. ” – Ollie

Number of Times Seen – 1 (26 Aug 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Stan and Ollie pretend to be owners of a mansion while its true owner is away in Africa on safari.

Bottom Line – Yet another really enjoyable Laurel and Hardy film. The slapstick humor between these two character is always impeccable and that helps keep things so enjoyable to watch unfold.  The chemistry between the two adds so much to their comic timing as things get more and more out of control as the story progresses. Love the way that these characters must constantly improvise as things move in directions they would never dream of since this adds so much to the way that the story unfolds in hilarious ways.

Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Although Stan’s dad “A.J.” Jefferson wrote the sketch this movie is based on, he didn’t like the finished film. He said it was too “Americanized”. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
