The Duo DefyBy WBarklam (39 reviews) from London , 28 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is L & H at the tailend of their greatness - a mischievous meld of contrived and charming sketches, hung together by a flimsy but fun plot, resolved as the title indicates at sea - sappy, soppy, but fun !

Stan and olly in spanishBy nobbyone (144 reviews) , 24 May 2011;;had a problem watching as disc was faulty.' I had forgotten about the start of the Saps at Sea. All about working in a horn factory. The reason they got the boat. One of the films on disc was a repeat of the one before only in Spanish //mexican. Weired. Best to watch in black and white.
A good giggleBy jezyork (31 reviews) from York , 09 Feb 2010This is classical Laurel and Hardy and a good giggle. This DVD has four L & H movies, each hilarious situational comedies.
After the first, 'Saps at Sea', released in 1940 and the final one from the Hal Roach productions, there follows 'Below Zero' and its Spanish language version 'Tiembla y Titubea'. It is fascinating to find these side by side, as the English language version has many scenes missing in comparison with its Spanish counterpart.
It seems to me that in this latter version, Laurel and Hardy have dubbed their own parts, where all the other actors have been dubbed by Mexican players.
The final film is a classic L & H silent movie 'You're Darn Tootin'. In this, the hilarious antics of the two are accompanied by an excellent organ accompaniment that matches the action extraordinarily closely in the traditional style of the silent film pianist.
classic - below zeroBy a customer from GLASGOW , 09 Oct 2009great stuff from L&H as usual. below zero is them at there best - a cracking short as the 2 hapless heroes try to earn a few coins playing in the sreet to a disasterous end.. saps at sea is L&H prob coming to the end of their great era - its overlong & a little thin on gags.. would have gave it 5 stars apart from an italian version of below zero thats on here- why i dont know - its irrelevant!!
The boys on top formBy Savage (632 reviews) from London, England , 12 Jan 2008For most people, 'Saps at sea' marks the end of L+H's great period, but it's a fitting send-off for them before they moved on to general mediocrity at MGM. Even better, though, this disc features one of their finest early shorts, 'You're darn tootin'', which sees them as a couple of musicians getting thrown out of a band, and then trying their luck as buskers. As someone else has noted on this page, it ends with a mass brawl in which everyone loses their trousers, which absolutely splendid: Stan's repeated shin-kicking is just tremendous.
laugh all the way throughBy a customer from cannock , 17 Sep 2007great comedy acting by larel and hardy,,,,clssic
