Audience Reviews for Lost in Alaska

A nice addition to the dynamic duo's previous works. Though not as much gags as you might expect or were hoping for it still is a wonderful experience.

Another Abbott and Costello movie that I never got a chance to see on TV. Don't believe this one got much air play, which is a shame as its up there with their best. Working in San Francisco as firemen they save a love sick miner from Alaska from jumping in the river to end it all. Somehow they end up in Alaska to join with the lady of the miners dreams to recover and move his gold before others get it. Many funny routines throughout this film Good clean comedy from an era when clean comedy was COMEDY. 4 Stars

Although Bud and Lou are always a pleasure to watch, this consists of mostly rehashed humor, although the sequence where Bud tricks Lou into keeping watch all night can cause some smiles.
