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.more

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.

Audience Reviews for Pardon Us

It has a couple of jokes in there, but it feels long. It's not horrible it just okay.

Laurel and Hardy put on black face and there are a couple of racist jokes which date it.
