Critic Reviews for Swiss Miss

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Definitely worth seeing, but if you're new to the Laurel and Hardy cult and haven't seen it and are thinking of buying it, be advised that, despite their top billing, they are almost guest stars here.

A touch of schmaltz worked box-office wonders for the Marx Brothers in A Night at the Opera, so Hal Roach pitched a tubful at this 1938 Laurel and Hardy vehicle. It's one of their worst films.

The film still contains a couple of classic sequences, most notably Stan's attempt to trick a St Bernard dog into letting him at its brandy keg and Ollie singing Let Me Call You Sweetheart to Stan's sousaphone accompaniment.

One of Laurel and Hardy's less effective outings.

So the plot has more holes than Emmenthal cheese, but who cares? More troubling are the romantic interludes and outbreaks of syrupy operetta that retard the comedy -- but they're worth sitting through for two of the pair's most sublime routines.
