As a big fan of Buster Keaton's "The General", "Sherlock Jr." and "One Week" I really looked forward to this one, but was, alas, sadly dissapointed. The first 3/4 of this movie was slow and the jokes did not work. The last 1/4 was very good however and made the whole experience worthwhile.

Buster Keaton AND a monkey in a sailor suit? Unbeatable.

Getting into trouble trying to impress a girl seems to be THE standard Buster Keaton plot, and so it is with The Cameraman. He plays an unassuming photographer who gets into the news reel game to impress a secretary at just such a business. When he's doing the inept but heroic cameraman shtick, it works. The second act, an extended date with his beloved, while not without its charms, doesn't interest me as much. It's really just a sequence of events that show how absolutely inconsiderate and rude people are in the big city, to the point where the setting irritates me and I can't enjoy the comedy. I would have personally excised the gurning cop, and trained monkey stuff has never been my cup of tea. I was all set to call this one over-rated when the well-directed third act kicked in, filled with action and various twists (and yes, strong monkey acting, I admit it). Though I was impatient with the middle there, the movie left me in a good mood.

Good one, but I've got to agree with @Zeltaebar
