Minor Laurel & Hardy knockabout, albeit with some pearly moments.

Audience Reviews for The Flying Deuces

Is this film high brow? No. Does it have a killer plot with a good script? No way. Yet that does not matter because you have the bumbling of the great Laurel and Hardy to keep you entertained. The story is incredibly simple. Ollie falls for a French girl who rejects him so he want to commit suicide, but instead he and Stan are advised to join the Foreign Legion. As you might have guessed that leads to some of their great comedy. I saw this film before and I was happily surprised again by the Flying Deuces.
