Fun Short with Good Ending
Home Early (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A husband (Robert Benchley) decides to leave work early so that he can surprise his wife and child. All seems good until he arrives home and his wife is having a bridge tournament. Things take a turn for the worse when the husband is sent to his room while the wife's friends begin filling her heads of reasons why he might really be off work. I've very, very, very hit and miss when it comes to Benchley's shorts but this one here come off pretty refreshing even if it's no classic. I think the idea of a man having good intentions only to be looked at as doing something guilty makes for some good laughs and the screenplay here keeps the action moving along pretty fast. The highlight of the film is certainly the final shot, which I'm not going to ruin but you'll certainly be laughing.
