| Harmless...
I have seen several of Robert Benchley's shorts for MGM and although he won an Oscar for one of these ("How To Sleep", 1935), I never have particularly enjoyed the films and they fail on one minor account...they aren't really funny. This is a problem, as they are meant to be comedies!

In this film, Benchley does what he usually does in films--introduces himself and dispenses sage advice. Then, Benchley demonstrates how something is SUPPOSED to be done and it's a total mess. The formula is pretty standard and it has some very mildly amusing moments. None of it is laugh out loud funny, but it is a harmless time-passer and nothing more.
