Perfect Day is the 1929 short comedy directed by James Parrott. Starring Stanley Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Edgar Kennedy, Kay Deslys and Isabelle Keith the plot sees the group attempt to enjoy a Sunday picnic but run into problems with their car.
They should have named it 'The Long Goodbye', I don't know a script that includes so many uses of the word. Good use of a car to contain most of the short scripts location, it's full of the typical gags including Ollie getting drenched and a mix up of clothing. There were some great small segments but the overall piece wasn't laugh out loud funny. Poor Stan gets choked out by Ollie (Homer and Bart Simpson style) and hit on the head pretty hard, that's a tough friendship to endure.
