Herr und Frau Lajeunesse wollen die Premiere von "Chantecler" besuchen, und die Abwesenheit ihrer Eltern möchten die beiden Söhne Max und Sergius zu einem kleinen vergnügten Abenteuer benützen. Doch kaum sind die beiden jungen Leute auf der Straße angelangt, als sie zu ihrem großen Schrecken bemerken, nicht einen Heller in der Tasche zu haben. Darum wird schleunigst Kehrt gemacht. Das Los entscheidet, daß Max die väterliche Kasse in Anspruch nehmen soll, doch wutbebend weist ihm der gestrenge Herr die Tür. Was nun? Doch halt. Max hat eine glänzende Idee. Des Abends, als sich das Ehepaar ins Theater begeben will, wird es von einem Strolche überfallen und Frau Lajeunesse ihres Handtäschchens beraubt. Zum Glück befindet sich in allernächster Nähe ein Schutzmann, welcher sofort dem enteilenden Apachen nachläuft, das von ihm weggeworfene Täschchen aufhebt und dem zitternden Ehepaare überreicht. Aus Dankbarkeit belohnt nun Herr Lajeunesse den tapferen Mann mit einer größeren Banknote. Der Strolch hat selbstverständlich das Handtäschchen vorher seines Inhaltes beraubt und dann erst weggeworfen, und sitzt nun gemütlich auf einer Bank, das geraubte Gut schmunzelnd überzählend. Nach einer Weile erscheint nun auch der Schutzmann auf der Bildfläche und nimmt gemütlich neben dem Vaganten Platz, demselben freundschaftlich die Hand schüttelnd. Jetzt entpuppen sich die beiden schlauen Jünglinge als Max und Sergius, welche um Geld zu beschaffen, auf diese geniale Idee kamen und nun mit Banknoten genügend versehen, ihren Vergnügungen nachgehen können.

We may not approve of the manner in which Max secures money from his father, but we cannot resist laughing at the droll comedy of this humorous French comedian. Max and brother are out of funds, and papa refuses to thaw out. Then we see the old gentleman setting out with his young wife for the theatre. At the corner a robber holds them up, grabs the lady's purse and runs. A policeman appears and follows the thief, who drops the empty purse, which the officer returns to the lady. Next we see the policeman and the thief taking off their disguises. They are Max and his brother. (The New York Dramatic Mirror, Jun. 25, 1910)

Max et Serge veulent aller faire la bombe mais ils n’ont pas d’argent. Max va en demander à son père mais celui-ci refuse. Ils décident alors de lui jouer un tour. Et lorsque les parents sortent pour se rendre à une soirée, ils sont agressés par un voleur mais un gendarme intervient qui met l’apache en fuite. Les parents le récompensent. Et nos deux malins se partagent l’argent. (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)

Another of those excellent little comic plays so ably acted by Mr. Max Linder, whose name when announced on the screen is sufficient to guarantee a good hearty laugh. Dick and Mick, two inseparable brothers, especially when any kind of fun is concerned, prepare for a merry „spree,“ when it occurs to them that they are both „stoney.“ Lots are drawn to see who shall approach their father and borrow of him, the choice falling upon Dick, who later makes a hasty and undignified exit from his stern parent's study. His dejected face speedily communicates his failure to Mick, and the two brothers gloomily rack their brains for another expedient. That evening, as the parents of the two youths are leaving their house for the theatre, they are attacked and robbed by a villainous-looking individual. Fortunately, a constable is able to put the thief to flight and to recover the lady's handbag - empty - which he restores as if in good order to its owner, receiving a handsome reward in exchange from her husband. It is needless to say that the villain and the policeman are the two graceless brothers, and the „spree“ which follows both will remember for some time. (The Bioscope, April 14th 1910)

How two brothers “raise the wind” at the expense of a close fisted parent, is humorously told. They pose as a footpad and a constable, respectively, and play their trick at night when their parents are on the way to a theatre. The constable receives a handsome reward for the recovery of the lady's handbag - just as he and his footpad confederate, waiting conveniently nearby, expected. (Kinematograph Monthly Film Record, June 1913)

Max and Mick, two brothers, have prepared for a merry spree and are actually stepping into their cab when it occurs to them they are penniless. Lots are drawn to see who shall beard stern father and make the necessary touch. The choice falls on Max who is far from successful in his mission, and he communicates the bad news to his brother Mick, who after thinking announces that he has an idea. One disguises as a thief and the other as a policeman. The thief holds up his parents as they leave the house, but the constable pats him to flight and receives a handsome reward. Their parents out of sight they discard their disguises, divide the reward and proceed out to enjoy themselves. (Moving Picture World, Jun. 18, 1910)
