Fun Size Review: Fox Trot Finesse (1915)

Comedic dynamic duo Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew poke fun at the then-current fox trot craze and their own May-December marriage in this absolutely delightful little comedy.

This comedy relies on the old awful mother-in-law chestnut but makes it fresh with charismatic leads and a knowing wink at pop culture. If you prefer your comedy a little less slapsticky, give Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Drew a try.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Sidney feigns injury to escape foxtrotting but his wife quickly finds him out.

If it were a dessert it would be: Sidney Drew’s Peanut Cookies. Good things come in small packages and these cookies are surprisingly light and dainty. Scrumptiousness!

Fox Trot Finesse was released on DVD as part of the Slapstick Encyclopedia box set.
