I've been a fan of the Three Stooges shorts since I was a kid and I've seen them all. The ones with Curly are usually the best but there are some with Shemp that are equally as good. After Shemp, forget it; the shorts with Curly Joe are just plain awful.
Disorder In The Court has everything you need in a Three Stooges short. At 16 minutes long it's chocked full of gags, jokes, puns and slapstick.
The funniest scene is Curly taking the oath to tell the truth before he takes the witness stand. This routine is a genuine classic and it's funny no matter how many times you see it. Curly also has some great pratfalls in the courtroom as he attempts to hop over a railing. There is plenty of eye gouging, face slapping and ear pulling for even the most seasoned Stooge fan.
(I have to throw in that if you like horror films check out Sam Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy with its numerous references to the Three Stooges, of whom he is a big fan.)
Five nyuks for this one.
