A comedy should be funny!
17 July 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Wally Vernon and Eddie Quillan dancing with some hot tomatoes at the beinning--too much

While The Three Stooges were by far the biggest stars working for Columbia Pictures' shorts department, they were by no means the least. During the time the Stooges were there, quite a few comedians found work there. Harry Langdon, Buster Keaton and Charley Chase had all once been top comics who found a home at Columbia when their careers had stagnated. In addition, many others made shorts there, such as Andy Clyde, Una Merkel, George Sidney and many others also tried their hands at Columbia...and in "A Fool and His Honey", two already well established actors, Wally Vernon and Eddie Quillan, tried their hands at Columbia comedy. And, like so many of these folks, their film was directed by Jules White.

When the film begins, the pair are dancing about with some hot tomatoes as well as dancing on their own. This scene is way too long and overdone and must have been done because Vernon and Quillan were excellent dancers...though none of this was particularly funny. Eventually, Eddie tells Wally that he doesn't understand why Wally loves to run around with women, as he has a lovely wife at home. Wally explains that it's okay for men to fool around...but not for their wives! What follows is a domestic comedy involving Wally and his wife (Jean Willes)....and eventually Wally thinks that Eddie is out to steal his wife.

So is it funny? Not especially. Often, instead of genuine laughs, the film resorts to action and violence. In the end, I could see why the pair never clicked with audiences.
