Storyline

The stooges are three doctors who graduated medical school by being in it for too many years.

A very funny short
30 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the Stooges best shorts. It was the only one of their shorts to be nominated for an oscar. In this short the Stooges play doctors, who cause some trouble as usual. This short has non-stop sight-gags, puns, and jokes. The part at the end, where the Stooges are breaking apart the machine. This is definitely a classic. I would highly recommend this Three Stooges short.
