Surprisingly enjoyable.
31 July 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The reason I say this short comedy is surprisingly enjoyable is that it comes on a DVD of mostly very unfunny shorts from Pathé...yet, somehow, "Traffic Tangle" isn't bad at all....and is worth seeing.

Nat Carr stars in this comedy and he plays a very stereotypically ethnic character. When the story begins, he's trying to cross the street--leading to a very cute bit involving a Boston Terrier. In the next scene, the proud man has returned home to show off his new car and to take the family for a drive. Not surprisingly, he gets into trouble again and again with the police while driving.

There are no huge gags here but instead there's a nearly constant stream of enjoyable bits....bits that are clever and cute. Not a great short by any stretch, but it is enjoyable and well made.
