    A Billion percent better than the original Captain Kidd. Can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing

    Typical fare for the duo enlivened by Laughton.

    Lackluster comedy in an inferior Laurel & Hardy way. It's also a sad outing for Charles Laughton in what is a woeful role for him, but I'm sure he had fun making this slapstick.

    Watchable but not anything special. The songs are rubbish, but there is some entertaining and funny moments, and Charles Laughton in not his best role does manage to make you crack a smile.

    Whiile watching this, I couldnt really decide who I should feel badder for, Abbittt and Costello, who really should have hung up the boots a long time ago, because they were really starting to show their age (especially Costello, poor guy) or, Charles Laughton? Let me repeat that.. CHARLES LAUGHTON, star of, oh I dunno, Witness for the prosecution? Hunchback of Notre Dame? Jamaica Inn? Lors knows what he's doing here, because he's just embarassing himself. Laughton plays Captain Kidd (again, he was the title character in, yes, Captain Kidd) and A and C get caught up in a map mixup.. hijinks ensue.. And songs. Lots and lots of songs. This is only an hour and they cram 4-5 songs in it, to cover up the lack of plot I guess. Like watching a car crash and watching it's victims die in slow motion.

    AVERAGE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO FILM, MADE WATCHABLE BY THE PRESENCE OF CHARLES LAUGHTON WHO DOES A GREAT JOB AGAIN AS CAPTAIN KID. OTHERWISE VERY ROUTINE.
