The film has its ups and downs. But it contains the great scene where Stan and Ollie dance in front of the saloon, in what was probably intended as a parody of big movie musical numbers. There's more joy in this brief scene than in most directors' entire filmographies. It makes life worth living.
Peu importe finalement l'histoire, le fou rire est presque toujours garanti, l'humour constant, les gags fort subtils, fréquents et inénarrables de drôlerie, pour une nouvelle réussite de l'inénarrable et facétieux duo que l'on adore... www.cinefiches.com
