A Really Bad Film All Around
At Sea Ashore (1936)

* (out of 4)

After the death of Thelma Todd the Hal Roach studio tried to keep a comedy "team" going so they teamed Patsy Kelly up with Lyda Roberti for two films. This one here has Kelly asked by her boss to go to the immigration office and pick up his niece (Roberti). Kelly agrees to do so but once down there she gets all sorts of trouble started. Who knows what was going on at the Roach studio after they lost one of their most popular comedians but this film here is just downright awful from start to finish and there's not a single laugh to be had. I'm sure they were just trying to find some sort of magic for Kelly but Roberti certainly wasn't the right selection. The screenplay itself is downright awful as we get no good jokes and not a single laugh in the entire film up until the closing seconds. Most of the jokes deal with Kelly sneaking into the office and then being unable to get out because she can't prove that she didn't just get off the boat. None of this stuff is funny and it ends with a very stupid sequence of her being put into a trunk so they can sneak her out but of course all sorts of bad things happen while she's in there. None of it is funny. Towards the start of the film we even get a musical number that doesn't work.
