Ollie and Stan sneak aboard a ship to Scotland. Stan's grandfather leaves him a bagpipe and snuff box- (the sneezing scene is worth the cost of this film)! They accidentally join the army, and are sent to India where they once again foil the plans of an invading army. Parts of this film were rereleased in "Laurel & Hardy on Parade". Bonnie Scotland is full of laughs and well worth the cost! It has a nice plot and very few dull moments. Contains several popular scenes including Ollie's bed on fire, Ollie sneezing in a pond, a pleasant dance, and a rival with a popular character. If you enjoy bagpipes, humor and Laurel & Hardy- this is a great movie!

While BONNIE SCOTLAND doesn't qualify as a classic, it's still lots of fun for Laurel and Hardy fans. The film's main problem is it's uncomfortable grafting of the boy's comedy onto a melodramatic B-picture storyline. June Lang and William Janney are the romantic leads, but unfortunately their roles are rather shallow and unsympathetic. Thankfully, Stan and Ollie's scenes are good enough to keep the film moving and enjoyable. Highlights include the boys innocently wreaking havoc in a Scottish boarding house, their improvised dance to "One Hundred Pipers," and Stan's constant inability to keep in step with the rest of the Scottish army unit! There are also good comic moments from James Finalyson, Mary Gordon and diminutive Daphne Pollard (hilarious as a cockney chambermaid). The picture and sound on this video transfer are sharp and clear.

BONNIE SCOTLAND (a/k/a HEROES OF THE REGIMENT, 1935, 85 minutes) is a Laurel and Hardy adventure that I have always enjoyed, though I also understand the purist's view that it derails the comedy team with a silly tripe of a romance story.

Stanny and Ollie end up in Bonnie, Scotland, ostensibly hoping to collect on an inheritance from the MacLaurel Family. Naturally that falls through since Stan's name is Laurel, but it doesn't stop our bumbling heroes from enlisting accidentally into the British Army - a kilted Scots regiment dispatched to India. They are on duty, and hilarity ensues.

The tripe of a romance is a story of the proper MacLaurel heiress, who runs off to India followed by her crushed young paramour. What is so very odd is that L&H never meet the other principals of that storyline though they do befriend the young man. The original actor had to be replaced when he found he couldn't stop laughing at the duo's famous ad-libbing.

Aside from the acting, which is really Grade A considering the period, I think "the boys" are in mostly terrific shape here. Some critics will disagree, and they will not know what they are talking about. I readily admit, what is odd is that the film was more of a mediocre sappy romance which happened to have Laurel and Hardy in it. Had it not been for equal time for the duo, one could almost feel tempted to say theirs was a cameo appearance.

In fact their humor is as powerful as ever. What they do with their kilts will make you howl with laughter. I am especially a fan of Oliver Hardy, and here he shows not only his charming acting abilities but his completely modern sense of humor. If you are relatively young, you'll instantly see how Ollie really is the prototype for the modern comedian/comic actor.

It's already been well-covered as to plot, deficiencies, etc. by other reviewers. So I will just say that, bogged down though it may be with a dreadful and forgettable romance that has little bearing on our boys, the merits far outweigh the slight defects. The 'Hundred Pipers' dance segment counts with their best, the bungled forced-suicide of Stanley's, ditto (Out of our sight, the gun goes off, but Stanley is revealed to be still standing; "What happened?" asks Ollie. "I missed," Stan replies tearfully.)Hard to beat that. Forget the carping criticisms of bad/non-existent Scots accents. Those of us who are fans find little to fault here. Recommended!

Are there any other good quality dvds of L & H
Universal released a 21 disc set in the U.K., the DVDs features all of the (sound and silent) shorts L&H made at Roach and most of the Roach features. The films are beautifully restored, some of the films have foreign language versions and (gads!) colorized versions as extras. The DVD set is... Read More

I like Bonnie Scotland better of the two movies on this dvd
I liked Bonnie Scotland, too, but I have to tip my hat to Fra Diavalo. In the book The Complete films of Laurel and Hardy the author does not rate Bonnie Scotland very high and compares it to Swiss Miss which I think is worse than the Flying Deuces. Ollie sneezing under water in Bonnie Scotland... Read More
