Movie Reviews

Brief Overview of Slapstick
peter485 | 11/04/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

""Slapstick Too" is a brief (no special features) hour and a half overview of clips from various slapstick films highlighting these main actors. Sadly, there are no film titles. Although the film does compare the slapstick of the early century to clips from films of the late 30's, I was hoping for more car, plane, and train chases and even the Keystone Cops. The final five minutes is worth watching because of the funny quick montage set to "can can" music. Being a Laurel and Hardy fan, I was glad to see their moments, but this 1998 version lacks some of the funny sight gags set to turn-of-the century LA.

I know that I've seen another VHS from before the 90's that did highlight the Keystone Cops and that they are probably fading on VHS, too expensive to buy on DVD, or in a vault somewhere. A great for young ones and the family to rent, but probably worth less to buy than the retail price."
