Minor Laurel & Hardy knockabout, albeit with some pearly moments.

It's not bad, but it ought to be better with those stars and that director.

A pretty funny movie with some decent action sequences. I love watching Stan Laurel's facial reactions and I love the way he starts crying when he gets into trouble. The movie had a very different ending that what I was expecting, which was also pretty good. I liked the ending.
