One of the "kissing partners" refers to Curley as "Mr. Howard" even though she shouldn't know his name, and he's using an alias. (This is due to the storyline of the film being changed after the scene was shot.) See more »


Moe: Boy, this picture business is tougher to get into to than I figured.
Larry: Don't worry, a bad beginning is a good ending.
Curly: Soitenly! If at first you don't succeed, keep on suckin' til you do suck seed.

Movie Maniacs!
8 February 2005 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

One of the most unique Three Stooges shorts is Movie Maniacs. In this short are Bud Jamison, Harry Semels, Mildred Harris, Kenneth Harlan, and Heinie Conklin. The acting by these actors are good especially by Jamison and Semels. There are many funny scenes here that I think most Three Stooges fans will love! In My opinion this one of the most different Three Stooges shorts. I strongly recommend this one!
