“Two Mugs from Brooklyn,” also known as “The McGuerins from Brooklyn,” is a brisk comedy about Tim McGuerin and Eddie Corbett, cabdrivers who turn a modest taxi service into a thriving business. Using flashbacks, the film reveals how Tim’s baseball pitching skills come in handy when he subdues a dangerous racketeer with a well-aimed monkey wrench, earning a hefty reward and boosting their enterprise.

The 45-minute film balances slapstick humor and entrepreneurial spirit, featuring a subplot about a burlesque queen who becomes Mrs. McGuerin. Both the main storyline and this romantic subplot blend seamlessly to create a light-hearted narrative that also pays tribute to the sport of baseball.
