The Reviews for The Nitwits (1935) 1080p


Murder and mirth is an uneven mix...Reviewed byDoylenfVote: 5/10

For awhile it looks as though THE NITWITS will be fun along the lines of an Abbot and Costello comedy that mixes mirth with murder in the form of a who-dun-it, but by the time the murderer is revealed as the man behind The Black Widow killings, the story has limped to a madcap slapstick conclusion with an assortment of gags, some good, some tiresome.

Along the way there are a couple of innocuous songs, one of them sung by a very young BETTY GRABLE before stardom at Fox, which she duets with BERT WHEELER. She's the secretary of a murdered executive and for awhile she joins the list of suspects, although we know she's innocent. ERIC RHODES has little to do as a man with a good reason to be one of the suspects, but the plot mainly has to do with Wheeler and ROBERT WOOLSEY (who looks like Phil Silvers on diet pills), and their scatterbrained encounters with the policemen trying to solve the case.

George Stevens directs the whole thing at a fast clip, especially the climactic ten minute scene of frantic over-the-top slapstick that concludes the story.

Summing up: Just okay if you're a fan of Wheeler and Woolsey. It's the kind of slapstick farce the kiddies usually enjoy at a Saturday matinée.

Other than they forgot to make it funny and its racist stereotypes, a reasonably agreeable time-passer!Reviewed byplanktonrulesVote: 5/10

Murders start occurring at a music publisher's and for no apparent reason, Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey are in the middle of it. Can these two idiots manage to solve the murder and save the day--or will they be The Black Widow's next victims?!

This Wheeler and Woolsey film is a bit different for them, as normally Wheeler's girlfriend in his films is played by Dorothy Lee. Aside from appearing in their films, Ms. Lee had a very limited career--but the same cannot be said of Wheeler's love interest in "The Nitwits". Here, his lady friend, Mary, is played by a very young Betty Grable--well before she became a national sensation.

Unfortunately, the rest of the film is NOT different from most of the films made by this comedy team. Like most, it lacked comedy--yet, inexplicably, the pair were very popular during the 1930s. Why, I haven't the foggiest, as the film has barely a laugh in it. However, despite not being funny, the rest of the film is a typical sort of comedy-murder mystery...with one exception. Throughout the movie, the filmmakers tried to elicit cheap laughs playing on racist stereotypes. Most of the black men in the film spent their time shooting dice and being VERY afraid of a guy dressed up like a skeleton--two annoying and dumb clichés of the era. Today, this sort of thing makes folks cringe-- back then it was a laugh riot.

Overall, if you compare this to a comedy like Abbott and Costello's "Hold That Ghost" or Bob Hope's "Ghostbreakers", it comes up very, very short indeed. You could certainly do better with your time.

One of the funniest films of all time.Reviewed bythavVote: 7/10

The first time I seen this film, I literally laughed myself sick! This film is many, many different types of movies rolled into one. You can call is a mystery for the who done it, science fiction for the speak truth machine, crime drama for the gangster activity, musical for the songs, thriller for the spooky scenes in the dark, love story for the scenes between Bert Wheeler & Betty Grable and of course, a comedy. The only catagory it wouldn't fall in is a western. This film has all the elements of the true classic comedy. It has the classic slap-stick which is extinct now-a-days. The scenes w/ Arthur Treacher as the poor victim always encountering the boys on the steps is this rare extinct form of comedy . I love it when they throw his tennis balls and land right in the cop's mouths. The scenes toward the end are also great. It's especially funny when these poor colored chaps try to have their crap game and end up having the bejesus scared out of them. They end up being chased by everyone else. This film is non-stop fun and unlike modern films, it is completely free of foul language & sex. Only a little bit of mild violence which I wouldn't be afraid to show even to small children. This is a film that will make time fly. It is total fun from start to finish. I would recommend this film to everyone except those of who who have a bad heart; they may laugh themselves dead!
