Uncivil Warriors is one of the funniest of the early Three Stooges shorts
5 January 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This review is of the eighth Three Stooges short they made for Columbia Pictures. In this one, Moe, Larry, and Curley (as his name was spelled at the time) are Union spies during the Civil War disguising themselves as Confederates in order to discover their plans. Plenty of many very funny and what would become very familiar routines abound here and they all come together perfectly. And it's always a treat to see usual supporting player Bud Jamison whenever he has a scene with the boys. Also, usual writer Felix Adler and director Del Lord-with only his second film with the boys-do a fine job of making this an almost perfect Stooges short. Oh, and while there's a visual joke near the end that would probably be politically incorrect today, the way Moe explains it does excuse it a little. So on that note, Uncivil Warriors comes highly recommended.
