ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE KEYSTONE KOPS (1955) ** ½

This typically silly later Abbott and Costello comedy has the duo traveling cross country to find a crooked movie producer in Hollywood during the silent era of cinema.  Because of the surroundings, the team almost solely relies on slapstick and not on their patented wordplay.  Fans of the Keystone Kops will also be disappointed as they only show up during the last ten minutes for an extended comic chase.  On the other hand, if you’re an indiscriminate fan of Abbott and Costello (like me) you’ll probably enjoy it.  Producer Mack Sennett cameos (as himself) as does Costello’s daughter (as a ticket taker).
