Twin Triplets (1935)

** (out of 4)

A rather bland entry in the Hal Roach series has Thelma Todd playing a dumb reporter who takes her friend (Patsy Kelly) along to the hospital to try and get a story. Todd thinks she's got the biggest story of her career when Kelly tells her that a woman just gave birth to six kids but it turns out that it was only two so the girls must round up four more babies before the newspaper bosses get in. I don't think anyone would ever argue that this Girl Friends series was high quality but there were a few good shorts made but also some rather bland ones and sadly this one here just doesn't work. Once again we're left with a pretty simple story that just doesn't have enough laughs to make it worth sitting through unless you're fans of the stars. The short gets off to a pretty good start as Todd does a very good job playing the dumb blonde. This isn't something she played too many times in the series so I thought it was fun seeing her this way but before the half-way point she's turned back to the character we're use to seeing her play. I really wish they would have kept the dumbness going as she did a good job with it. Kelly once again goes over-the-top but it doesn't get any laughs. The stuff with mixing up all the babies just wasn't funny and once we get to the climax we get an obvious joke with one of the babies not being white.
