An extremely funny WC Fields film. Wonderful!
A work of genius. Way ahead of its time.
Enjoyable W.C.Fields short classic film, and his is in good form with his unique homor. Amusing and entertaining.
I consider myself a strong appreciator of the irreverent and bizarre, but this W.C. Fields short takes a few too many liberties with its liberation and ends up being an inaccessible and generally unfunny outing. I do appreciate the storyline the film tries to follow, and I think there is something to be said about the unconventional jabs it takes at family living, but the script is too unfocused to allow for any real comic depth, or even any of the simplistic slapstick set pieces Fields' films are usually so full of.
This is often considered Fields' most bizarre work. Indeed, I found it a little odd as he plays a Canadian prospector and acts rather silly. There are moments I loved such as when Fields is pelted with snow everytime he utters a certain phrase or the soup scene, but overall the film lacks in entertainment.
"The Fatal Glass of Beer" refers to a song that Mr. Snavely (Fields) sings about his son. I didn't really get the humor in it and I just found the film, as a whole, rather boring. I guess I need a little more substance with my humor.
"It's not a fit night out for man or beast."
actually, kind of unwatchable. the gags are overly repetitive and didnt really strike a cord with me in the first place. aside from that, theres no coherent story here. i can respect fields for the bank dick and 1, maybe 2 of his shorts, but man, some of it just isnt any good.
Easily my favorite Fields short. In fact, I wish I was W.C. Fields.
