Audience Reviews for Never Weaken

A sort of precursor to the "thriller" brand of comedy perfected in "Safety Last!," this Harold Lloyd short is as massively entertaining as anything I've seen by him. This also features by far the funniest suicide attempt scene I've ever seen!

Featuring the usual movie magic Lloyd so fondly would use to trick audiences into trembling anxiety, "Never Weaken" is filled with the usual almost-falling-off-of-buildings-tricks as well as the expected silent film staple; whoops we're falling on ice again gag. Nothing revolutionary or spectacular, Lloyd's two-reeler is simple and delightful at most.

A funny little Harold Lloyd short with a number of good visual gags - including a whole slew of suicide attempts by Harold (much funnier than you'd think). The previous year's "Number Please?" is even better, but it isn't listed on Flixster. They're both available on the Harold Lloyd Comedy Collection 3 DVD release.
