The Three Stooges
18 November 2003 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Moe, Larry and Curly are the three main witnesses in a murder case. To show the judge what has happened they will reconstruct the night of the murder.

This is a very funny short. I especially liked the first half where Curly has swear to tell the truth and get on the stand. Another great short movie by the Three Stooges.
