Audience Reviews for The Goat
"The Goat" is another Buster Keaton short and clocks in at 23 minutes in length. The whole film is one giant chase scene filled with all kinds of antics, some you can see coming and others are only seen by Buster. The whole film is a delightful, fast paced, and hilarious for the entire length of the film. The idea of Buster being chased by cops throughout the film would later be replicated a thousand fold in his other short released the next year in 1922 "Cops". Both Keaton's Co-Director Malcolm St. Clair (Dead Shot Dan) and long time Co-Director collaborator Edward F. Cline (One of the policemen) makes appearances in the film as well as Buster's other staring partners. Many critics have said that if you only had 23 minutes to show the entirety of Buster's career, "The Goat" is the film to watch because it contains the best variety of all his skills! A masterpiece, plain and simple.
Keaton looks like a criminal? This movie is really funny.
A very early short from Buster Keaton, usual Keaton style with some very, clever moves involving more props and great stunts. Aclever little mix up of the wrongly accused.
