Slow moving with a couple extended sketches that were a bit long. There's just enough plot about W.C. Fields trying to see a wrestling match for which he paid $15 to get a ringside seat to tie together the sketches, one-line quips and vaudevillian sight gags. It's not as strong as some of his others, but W.C. Fields fans will still enjoy it.

Enjoyable W.C. Fields comedy. It's slightly less absurd than other films of his, but it has some great moments.

This is one of W.C. Fields finest movies. It has several very classic and funny scenes. The supporting cast is excellent, especially Kathleen Howard and Grady Sutton. Excellent screenplay and it?s a very memorable and amusing film.

"Man on the Flying Trapeze" is yet another funny W.C. Fields misadventure that mines humor from social and familial mores.

Thoughts:
1) Alcoholism is no longer funny
2) Old people are no longer funny
3) Wrestling is still bogus
And yet, Fields is funny, and in this movie, an accomplished actor. The movie itself is not one of his best.
