Goofs

The court bailiff opens his mouth early, as Curly launches the bass bow, apparently either in anticipation of Curly launching the bow, or it was a jump in the film. (This is a result of the shot being shown in reverse; the bow was actually in the bailiff's mouth first, then pulled away, then the film was shown in reverse.) See more »

Courtroom drama at its best!!!
8 June 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Out of all the Three Stooges shorts that I have seen, there are maybe 6 or 7 that really stand out and are really funny. Disorder in the Court just about heads the list. I have never seen behavior like this in a courtroom!

Well, if you have ever gone to traffic court and listened to some of the excuses and nonsense that some of the defendants try to give the judge, it only is just an inkling of what to expect in this movie. It is absolutely hilarious!!!

I have this movie in my personal collection and have probably watched it maybe a dozen times or so. I basically know every line, every scene and every antic that happens.

Just think how Perry Mason or the Defenders or even Matlock would react if they had to deal with this type of situation.

All in all, for R-E-A-L enjoyment and to get you out of the doldrums, this movie is a God send!!
