Audience Reviews for Dr. Jack


A sweet tale of a young, idealistic doctor (Harold Lloyd) who manages to cure everyone's ails without actually doing anything medical. He's more of the Patch Adams mindset, you see. He'd rather prescribe fresh air and good humor. Jack faces his biggest challenge when he's asked to check on a beautiful invalid (Mildred Davis, later to become Lloyd's wife). A rival doctor (Eric Mayne) has been keeping her in bed for years, just to siphon off her rich family's funds. Poor girl. A climactic sequence involving an escaped lunatic is a bit burlesque compared to the earlier material, but "Dr. Jack" is still a nice little comedy.

This one is my favorite of Lloyd's movie so far. The poker and the chase through the house are hilarious and a great showcase of silent movie comedy. I also like how I've seen 3 of Lloyd's movies and have yet to see a repeated joke in them, which some old comedians fell prey to do.
The acting was also good by Lloyd who is a master at his craft, but I also liked Davis' performances. She was very likable and a good oppisote for Lloyd.
The story is still basically the same formula as the other movies (Lloyd meets girl and trys to be with her), but it still works fr him and isn't old yet.
It's a great film for Lloyd and silent comedy fans.

doctor jack is probably one of my favorite llyod roles. he uses his mind and and common sense. not all the scientific stuff
