    ★★★★

    Classic Laurel and Hardy short that has then at their slowly building to absolute mayhem best with plenty of outsiders to end up in scuffles with as well as a battle between the pair, a piano, and a very long staircase and of course their own internal squabbles adding to the comedy. It was MicroMort's first Laurel and Hardy short and he loved it.

Chris Evans continues to show that he really needs to be in more good roles than just playing Captain America.

The Peckinpah action scenes are amazing in that setting, and the score by Quincy Jones is quite good, and a little out of the ordinary for both the director and genre. A great cast of character actors is backing McQueen and McGraw, but it's McGraw (and her poorly written character-I blame Walter…
