This short is a classic example of the pain the Besser era brings as well: bad plots. It is difficult to be funny when there isn't... Stooginess.
We return to the world of hump day condoms
with a short that
is just plain awful. They should have
put this to rest back then. We have a better placement of the cake scene. Beyond that? TERRIBLE. I do give credits for how the stock footage is worked in, and it is seamless, so there are bonus points for that.
Emil Sitka makes a terrible gorilla, and there is nothing funny about watching people in genuine pain. We are going full HALF-SHOT SHOOTERS here. This is one short where gorillas are B.A.D. BAD BAD BAD! This is not a short you show to cutters
. They will have finished themselves off
by the end. Oh, yeah, hi Beverly Thomas; you're more obvious than Jennie-O Kascier in SELF MADE MAIDS.
The best moments of the new footage are Emil's reaction to seeing himself and Moe getting his head banged back together. Alas, we have
crossed the hump
jumped the shark into the stock footage era.
Yes, Metaldams, I
am the bad guy this week.
