Movie Info

Laurel and Hardy's first feature-length film is a prison comedy made on left-over sets from the MGM production, "The Big House." Among the oddball highlights is an extended scene of the two -- in adjacent cells -- in a bizarre conversation about food as well as a delightful soft-shoe number after a day of cotton-picking.

All Critics (2)

Whether it's Ollie mugging the camera as he breaks the fourth wall, or Stanley doing his double and triple takes, these guys are brilliant.

Not one of the funny duo's best efforts.
