Not one of the better Keaton shorts, but far from a turkey. Paul is correct in that this is mostly a display of Keaton's mechanical genius, and if every short were like this, yes, his filmography would be tedious. However, it's just one short and it is a cool side of Keaton. There is a lesser known comedian who is kind of Keaton like named Charley Bowers who made mechanically inclined animated gags in his shorts, and he was a genius in that sense, but he lacked Keaton's character and story telling. THE ELECTRIC HOUSE is closest to that, but as a one time thing, I enjoy.
Still some good physical comedy, as Keaton takes a few good falls. The stuff on the escalator is fantastic and the big fall Keaton takes a couple of stories into the swimming pool, a wonderful and dangerous fall. Keaton's dark side shows through with the suicide gag at the end, something we shall be seeing again next short.
The rest of the short is basically mechanical, a visual feast. The pool table, dishwasher, train that delivers food, all fun stuff. Yes, fairly one note compared to other Keaton films, but it's a note well played.
