Set in a western town, the stooges are working as waiters in a saloon with the three girls they hope to marry. The proprietor of the saloon is a crook who, with his partner, has buried $40,000 of stolen money. The boys go prospecting in hopes of raising enough money to pay off the debts of their fiancée father, who owes money to their boss. They dig up the stolen money, which the crooks recognize as their loot and abscond with. A wild chase ensues, ending with the bad guy's car crashing into the Sheriff's office.

Yes, We Have No Bonanza (1939)

*** (out of 4)

Set in the Old West (although there are cars here), the Three Stooges find themselves working as waiters but their goals are to marry the woman they love who also work in the bar. That's nearly impossible as the girl's father owes money to the bar owner but the boys set out to get their riches in gold and think they find it. This certainly isn't classic Stooges but there are enough funny moments here to make it worth viewing. One of the best gags is a scene where Curly throws Moe a bear, which he catches but when he tries to throw Larry one he misses and it ends up all over Moe. Other nice gags include a sequence where the boys think their mule has eaten a stick of dynamite as well as another great one when they finally discover some money. The start of the film also has Moe and Larry singing a couple songs, which are pretty good, although the woman singing with them are pretty bad. I'm not quite sure why so much of the film takes place in the 1800s yet we then get a few moments with cars that would make you think it was current times. This here really isn't that big of a deal as there are plenty of laughs.
