better than average abbott and costello.
on 7 June 2012
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.
