Critic Reviews for The Music Box
Like so many of Laurel and Hardy's escalating disasters, it can only be watched from between your fingers.
Demonstrates exemplary comic timing and some genuinely hilarious bits of exaggerated violence.
Audience Reviews for The Music Box
You can see the huge influence that this classic short comedy and other similar ones by Laurel and Hardy had on an infinitude of movies, cartoons and comedians that came out after, and it is really funny to see those two wrestling with a piano up and downstairs over and over.
I remember seeing this on tv years ago when Leonard Maltin would introduce laurel and hardy films on tcm. Upon viewing it again via youtube (i know right!?) a lot of things began to upset me. Why on earth did they lug that piano all the way DOWN the stairs when they already got to the top? Why couldn't that asshole professor just walk around? Still funny.
Another mediocre Laurel and Hardy movie, sometimes funny sometimes not funny.
