Laurel And Hardy: Their First Mistake/Brats/Twice Two
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
Triple bill of fun with Stan and Ollie. In 'Their First Mistake' they are left holding the (adopted) baby when they return home with a new addition to the family, only to find Mrs Hardy has done a runner. 'Brats' finds the comic duo babysitting their sons, played by themselves. In 'Twice Two' Stan and Ollie have married each other's twin sisters, and sparks fly when they all meet up for dinner. All films with original titles restored.

In 'Their First Mistake' Stan advises Ollie that all his wife needs is a baby, so they adopt one, only to find Oliie's wife has walked out and is suing for divorce. The boys then adopt the role of a couple in a strange and quite delightful dialogue sequence. The rest of the film is pure knockabout and very funny despite having no real ending.
'Brats' is one of the most fondly remembered of their films with Laurel and Hardy playing their adult characters plus their own children. Immensely enjoyable. Twice two is slightly less satisfactory with the boys playing their wives as well as themselves. I find the dubbed female voices slightly irritating but the whole film is worth it for the sight gag of Ollie's sister (Stan's wife) with a cake on her head - and Stan's attempt to buy icecream is priceless.
Unlike some other videos in this series there are no makeweights here.
"Their First Mistake" is the first film on the tape. My favourite part is when the lights go out and Ollie trips and makes an awful noise and wakes the baby and the neighbourhood.
The next story "Brats" is unusual as Stan and Ollie play their own children as well as themselves. The "kids" look just like Laurel and Hardy in a giant's house!
"Twice Two" is my favourite of the three. This time the boys play each other's wives as well as themselves. One of funniest scenes is when Stan's wife (Fanny) gets a cake on her head and she looks like the old picture on the wall.
Brats and Twice Two see L&H playing their children and wives respecitvely. More than interesting for L&H fans and some good sight gags and dialogue for everyone.
Three excellent short fims.
