Goofs:
Continuity: The names of the Stooges' fiancées change. When the Stooges first arrive at the ladies' house and address the ladies' names, June Gittelson is Corabell, Marcia Healy is Florabell, and Betty Mack is Dorabell. Then a little later in the short when each Stooge draws one of the women's names from the hat, June is suddenly Florabell, Betty is Corabell, and Marcia is Dorabell! Further complicating matters, when Marcia is knocked out by the cement block, Curly calls her Corabell... Marcia played all three girls.See more »

3 out of 3 people found the following review useful.
Keaton, 13 December 2005
Author: tedg (tedg@FilmsFolded.com) from Virginia Beach

I saw this with another Stooges short, "Violent is the Word for Curly." By the late 30's they were trying all sorts of forms. "Curly" was based on the Marx brothers form. This is based on a famous Keaton gag.

The three marry sisters (drawing lots), and get a house kit that they assemble incompetently.

There's a Laurel and Hardy precedent and before that the famous Keaton "One Week." That's hilarious and clever. This isn't, except for having stooge women.

Ted's Evaluation -- 1 of 3: You can find something better to do with this part of your life.
