Pretty Amusing After A Somewhat Slow Start
13 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

After a somewhat slow start, this 'Fatty' Arbuckle short feature picks up steam and is pretty amusing. It has Arbuckle as a somewhat restless husband trying to hide his escapades from his wife and mother-in-law. The first part has a couple of good gags, but otherwise things move a little slowly for the first few minutes. Then 'Fatty' really gets in a jam, and things pick up quickly. The second half has a film-within-a-film sequence that is cleverly done and that is also very funny, and this part works well. Overall, this is an entertaining comedy that any Arbuckle fan should like.
