Like so many of Laurel and Hardy's escalating disasters, it can only be watched from between your fingers.

Audience Reviews for The Music Box

Another mediocre Laurel and Hardy movie, sometimes funny sometimes not funny.

I remember seeing this on tv years ago when Leonard Maltin would introduce laurel and hardy films on tcm. Upon viewing it again via youtube (i know right!?) a lot of things began to upset me. Why on earth did they lug that piano all the way DOWN the stairs when they already got to the top? Why couldn't that asshole professor just walk around? Still funny.

How can anyone not love any Hal Roach production?... Laurel and Hardy are a sure hit for an honest to goodness heartfelt laugh. I feel quite bad for the newer generations who will only be able to watch these great pieces on cable and not on broadcast TV as I and many millions did and grew up with.
