I used to love abbot and Costello as a child, so thought I could relive that again by watching these two comic around. Unfortunately this film should of remained a memory instead.
Stupid, daft and appaling

Hit the Ice

Not quite Universal Studios flogging a dead horse...

...but dangerously close.

However, there is still enough here to keep the grin on the face and there is still a high production value within the structure, if only the same could be said of the writing! I tend to feel with Abbott & Costello movies it pays to take a break for a few months and then go back to further viewings refreshed and not feeling a sense of seen this before repetitiveness.

This one sees the boys as photographers who unwittingly get mixed up in a bank robbery and have to flee to a ski resort to hopefully prove their innocence. The usual pratfalls are abound as Tubby constantly loses his pants, gets his bum set on fire, skis with a grizzly bear, and of course he tries to woo the pretty lady by bluffing he can play the piano. Music comes courtesy of Ginny Simms and the Johnny Long Orchestra, with stoic supporting acting duties falling to Patric Knowles, Elyse Knox and the always great Sheldon Leonard as the chief villain.

Not close to being in the top five outings from the guys, but certainly an above average offering showing glimpses of just why they really were a special talent back in the day. 6/10

i'm the first to admit that i'm not the biggest fan of abbott and costello but i still enjoy some of their films sometimes.
the first in this little collection, "hit the ice," is by far the better film as the gags and storyline moves at a brisk pace and the on-screen chemistry between the two leads is still relatively new and fresh. one negative thing though is that i still have to fast forward through those stupid and pointless musical numbers. all they do is slow up the film in its tracks.
"lost in alaska" isn't much to write home about. i wouldn't call it the worst A and C film but it certainly isn't their best either. the plot is threadbare, the low budget really shows in some places and the comedy team are starting to look a bit on the tired side. a shame really.
