Not Their Best, But Still Fun, 4 November 2010
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

This is another wild-and-crazy Three Stooges flick but - joke-wise - not one of their best because most of the gags are just too corny, and a couple of them were repetitive (like a duck spitting a stream of water at Curly). Nonetheless, that doesn't mean it still wasn't fun to watch and crazy things were happening almost the whole time. The guys stealing a watermelon and passing it like a football started the looniness off quickly.

In addition to stealing, which they readily admit they do, the Stooges are trying to make some money and they wind up selling memberships The Canvas Back Duck Club, which really doesn't exist, just run by a couple of scam artists looking to find some dumb salesmen to make some quick cash for them. Enter Curly, Larry and Moe.

Dressed like hunters, the boys go out selling. This is a little louder than normal because The Stooges are obnoxious salesmen.

Bud Jamieson, a favorite of Stooges fans, plays the Chief Of Police and an uncredited actor plays the Mayor. If a real-life town had these two bozos running things, it would be in big trouble.

The real fun starts when the boys lead these guys into the duck blinds to go hunting. Then it gets pretty funny.
