Wonderfully clever imitations
"Matty Breaks Into Vaudeville" is the subtitle of this installment and the best thing (in fact the only good thing in it) is the wonderfully clever imitations of Matty, who, on the stage, "takes off," and to laughable perfection, Ford Sterling, King Bagott in Absinthe, Gertrude Hoffman and Harry Lauder. This is the truly funny part and fills the best portion of the film. The celebrities that he meets and all of the a la Mutual Girl stuff in it is rather thin and uninteresting. - The Moving Picture World, August 1, 1914
