Dizzy Doctors (1937)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Classic Three Stooges short has the boys being threatened by their wives to find jobs or move out. The boys are eventually hired as salesmen and they start passing around what they think is spot remover but it does a lot more damage than that. This is another classic from the Stooges even though the second half isn't nearly as funny as the first. I think the first half features some of their greatest gags, which starts off with the boys sleeping in until eleven, eating breakfast for five minutes and then getting back into bed. Curly eating the soap is one highlight but most of the great gags happen on the streets as the boys start selling. The "spot remover" actually removes clothing from a cops uniform and removes the paint from another guys car and these are the biggest laughs of the film. Another great gag is the cop thinking Larry is missing a leg, which is actually just through a fence.
