Audience Reviews for Check and Double Check


The only Amos & Andy film. It felt pieced together - like two movies were made into one. The parts without the duo are dry, basically a drama about those courting a rich young woman. But the Amos & Andy parts are down-right hilarious. They were more or less skits that were attached to main film - it never really "flowed." I really wish they would have made more films. To note, political-correctness apparently took hold even way back when and the original blackface Amos & Andy were replaced by actual Blacks with much less funny dialogue and not as good timing like these, the originators.
