An Uninvited Guest.
Laurel And Hardy

Infamous for their witty sense of humor that whips you around for both, their verbal sparrings and physical sequences, this comedy duo has managed to entertain and inspire millions of viewers and comedians for their own personality and nothing else. The type of characters that they have shined their lights on, may not resonate on terms of their characteristics with you, but can easily be communicated by their deeds. And performing such simplistic persona, Laurel and Hardy has spoken a lot of the society that they resided at that era and the betterment that they seek at the end of it. Laurel using his body language often has the torch in his hand, he is a type-of-bully natured towards Hardy but in a brotherly way, he also plays the smarter cookie between them, the one who is more is touch with practicality. Hardy, on the other hand, has its own rhythm to beat, he lives on his own imagination, he is more emotionally fueled and often the butt of the joke. Teaming up for ensuing chaos for themselves, the writing has always explored the nature of a being, to its best and is its primary armor to draw in the dramatic impact on their audience. Their knack of animating themselves on the gags; something that comes up when they are deep into it and have been exaggerating for a while, doesn't come off as they anticipate every time.

Should Married Men Go Home

The first act is flat out hilarious, Laurel creating a havoc in Hardy's house without uttering a single word, is one of their apt representation of a guest; just exaggerating for few laughs. While on the golf course, it seems like there isn't much to explore, it has a disappointing end with few laughs only when they are at bar, for when the rest of the cast teams up for a final act, the chaos is coined as pulling each other's leg which to be frank isn't that funny.
