Evelyn Rose’s review published on Letterboxd:
Laurel and Hardy are fugitives who find themselves atop a skyscraper scaffolding with crabs in their pants. Should they manage to get down with their lives intact, they will be arrested. Among the greatest silent comedies, this is a perfectly purified distillation of the genre's elements. It makes you sweat like a hot day in June – and it's funny too.
