Three Little Beers (Del Lord, 1935) ***
9 February 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

The cinematic spoofing of the high-class sports of golf was made famous by W. C. Fields in a couple of his films and even Laurel & Hardy tackled the subject in one of their underrated Silent shorts, SHOULD MARRIED MEN GO HOME? (1928); it's hardly surprising, therefore, to find The Three Stooges getting the golfing bug in this one and, later still, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis would do so too in THE CADDY (1953).

Anyway, The Stooges are newly-employed delivery-men with a beer-producing company who set their modest sights on winning the top $100 prize in a golfing competition between employees of their own firm; they stop during a delivery to spend an hour of training at the sport which, typically, is alien to them at this point…and their ideas sure don't get any clearer by the end of it. Happily, in lieu of their usual slaphappy schtick, we get several funny routines displaying their incompetence at the sport: Moe digging up innumerable holes in the green in his attempts to hit the ball and maintaining that he must be improving since the holes are getting smaller; Curly chopping down a tree because his ball has got itself stuck in it; Moe hitting dozens of golf balls with three tees simultaneously and striking down everybody who happens to be in the vicinity; Larry getting stuck in a cement pit and being dragged by the irate worker by his moppish hair; the boys being chased around the sloping town streets by their own kegs of beer which have gone loose, etc.
