The Jazz Fool Review
The Jazz Fool is a 1929 Mickey Mouse cartoon. It is such a disappointing flick.
This is basically another one of those music-obsessed episodes but this time, the music is not that memorable and the film is way too short for it to be memorable. What I really liked about is of course that third act with the piano which was fun and Mickey himself is very funny here and once again horrible and mean spirited, this time to that poor piano.
But that ending is still not that great or hilarious and everything that came before it was forgettable and uninspired. I wished to have seen more characters, much more plot and a longer runtime. This way it ended up being one of the weaker Mickey Mouse shorts so far and I am looking forward to the day when they stop relying so much on music and start relying more on its star.
Mickey Mouse is great in The Jazz Fool, a film which is otherwise uninspired and too short.
