Storyline

A vaudeville show is playing, but the bottom billed act of Heely, Heely, Heely & Heely (who have the first names Ted, Larry, Curly & Moe) have just been fired because Ted has been fooling around with girls telling them he can get them into show business, which in turn always gets him into trouble. Their next job is as waiters in a restaurant that has a floor show. Since they end up not being very adept waiters which causes much havoc amongst themselves and with the customers, they may as well sit back, eat the food, watch and enjoy (sort of) the floor show and in turn take over the floor show, much to the restaurant manager's chagrin. But the havoc continues and Ted has a fitting conclusion to his problems. Written by Huggo

incredibly insulting and not at all funny
3 May 2008 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

The commenter from Walla Walla got it right. The Joe Besser stooges shorts are masterpieces by comparison to this total waste of film. It's not even remotely funny or even amusing. Instead of laughing, I was angry at someone as minimally talented (and I am being nice) as Ted Healy beating up on my stooges. Talk about a third rate comic, this guy is worse than that. I guess they had to start somewhere. Maybe they were all funny on the vaudeville stage together, but they were not in this thing. Stay the heck away from this film. It is not worth wasting 20 minutes of your life. I'm not even going to mention where I saw it to spare you the pain.
