Fair Boy Friends
Bigger and Better (1930)

** (out of 4)

Decent "Boy Friends" entry has Mickey Daniels, David Sharpe and Grady Sutton getting summer jobs in a department store where they plan on meeting girls but soon each of them are in over their heads and especially Mickey who is working as a detective. This isn't the greatest short to come out of Hal Roach Studios but there are enough decent moments to make it worth sitting through if you enjoy these early sound shorts. I actually thought the first half of the film was better when the boys were on a train with a lot of girls and trying to pick them up. All three try for this one young lady are end up being rejected in some funny ways. The second portion of the film takes place at the department store and this is where the screenplay goes rather flat as we get the jokes you'd expect and none of them are very funny. One such joke includes Mickey arresting a famous shoplifter who of course turns out to be the store's best customer. Sharpe has a run in with a man whose hat keeps getting damaged and Sutton has no luck in the shoe department.
