(Review originally written at 14 January 2006)

This is certainly one of the most enjoyable Laurel & Hardy shorts and personally one of my favorites.

Once again the short can be divided up into two parts. The first part of the movie is about the comical duo helping a young girl escape the clutches of the hotel owner the two just checked in to. The second part of the movie is about Mr. Laurel ending up in a boxing match by coincidence against that very same hotel owner.

The typical slapstick humor is present in both parts of the movie which makes this movie, unlike some other Laurel & Hardy movies, a consistent and constantly funny movie. The movie has some truly good laughs in it and some of the slapstick moments are absolutely priceless and hilarious. The timing and surprise elements in the movie that are absolutely not predictable in any way makes this movie an absolutely great one to watch.

In my opinion an absolute comical must-see!
