Movie Reviews

A Solid Abbot / Costello Movie
J. Reynolds | Houston, TX United States | 04/13/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was a solid A&C film, the plot dealing with $50,000 stolen by some bad guys. A post-WWII comedy, when the nation was in the mood for light-hearted, non-heavy entertainment."
A PLEASANT COMEDY
Darren J. Patalon | 01/15/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

""THE NOOSE HANGS HIGH",MAY NOT BE ABBOTT & COSTELLO'S BEST WORK,BUT IT IS
FAR FROM BEING THEIR WORST.IT KIND OF REMINDED ME OF LAUREL & HARDY'S FILM
"OUR RELATIONS".IT HAD A LOT OF COMICAL MISHAPS,CONFUSION AND MIXUPS THAT
KEEP THIS MOVIE MOVING AT A STEADY BUT FRANTIC PACE.THE ONLY MISSING IN-
GREDIANT IN MY OPION IS THAT BUD & LOU DON'T HAVE A SET OF TWINS TOO HELP
RELIEVE SOME OF THE TROUBLES THAT FALL ON THEM.HILARIOUS IS THE "MUDDER AND FODDER"ROUTINE PERFORMED BY LEON ERROL AND LOU COSTELLO, IT IS A-
PRICELESS MOMENT.NOT TO SAY THAT THIS PICTURE AS A WHOLE ISN'T WITHOUT
SOME MINOR FLAWS.THE FILM DOESN'T HIDE IT'S STUDIO MAKING SUROUNDINGS,IT
ALMOST COMES ACROSS AS AN EARLY TELEVISION SITCOM,WHERE IT IS OBVIOUS THAT
THE ACTORS ARE PERFORMING ON A STAGESET.

Side splitting humor
Ron Willett | Walnut Shade | 03/09/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I laughed so hard just watching my younger brother laugh it was great. This was the scene where Abbott kept telling Costello to put on his pants to an immediate take them off. This went on for several minutes. Great team humor. It does not exist any more. One of the boys better films."
ONE OF ABBOTT & COSTELLO'S BEST FILMS
10/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Charles Barton does fine job directing this classic A & C film. The plot is very simple. Mistaken identity leads to complications with the boys getting robbed of a large sum of money. This film teams the duo with another popular film comedian at the time - Leon Errol. He plays the role of J.C. (Julius Ceasar) McBride, a compulsive gambler who NEVER loses. The BEST highlight of the film has Errol filling in for Abbott as he and Costello perform the classic A & C routine "MUDDER AND FODDER". Again 5 STARS to Bud and Lou for keeping generations and generations of fans laughing all these years."
