Weaker Three Stooges short has the boys breaking out of prison so they can stop their father from marrying a blonde who is working with a gangster. After the marriage they plan on killing the father but the boys have their own plans. The boys were in an incredibly hot stretch during this period of their career so it's rather shocking to see how bland this short is but no one could have batted a thousand. The biggest problem I found was that the film was extremely lazy in its writing and acting. The screenplay is a pretty poor one because it recycles plenty of gags seen in previous films but this time out they aren't one bit funny. Another issue with the laziness comes in an early gag where Moe and Larry pick Curly up to use his head to break out of the prison. The edit to the stunt double is poorly done but what's even worse is that the stunt double is so obvious because he's skinny and has a full head of hair! Also, having Curly play the father is fine but they make no attempt to make him look different. I know this plays a part in a joke towards the end but the joke itself is rather lame, which just makes this stick out like a sore thumb.
