(OK) The 20 last minutes are a masterpiece, before that is just a regular comedy. The stones are tjje surrealist absurd moment, but I prefer the beginning of the big part: Keaton sleeping while the church gets crowded with the brides....

I mean, it was still fun but there were a couple of things that did bother me. For example, there were a few black characters involved, more than you would usually get in a Keaton feature, which wasn’t a bad thing but the way they were represented was more than questionable.
