Storyline

The stooges are greeting card salesmen who are mistakenly inducted into the army after escaping from the jealous husband of one of their customers. In bootcamp their sergeant turns out to be the same man, whom they constantly vex and bewilder. When the boys are sent to the front lines and the sergeant is captured they must rescue him, which they do after doping themselves with laughing gas. At the end they get shot off into the sunset on a cannon shell. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

The Stooges Can't Get Away From This Guy!
1 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The boys are out on the street selling greeting cards (did they actually do that sort of thing in the 40s?) and are having a tough time. After getting socked by a pretty woman, they flee and run over a guy. That guys is steamed but the boys show him or thing or two and dump into one of those street elevators. He vows revenge.

Meanwhile, the Stooges try their sales luck inside. They knock on a lady's door and she's distraught. She doesn't think her husband loves her anymore and the boys help in a plan to make him jealous by "making love" to her when he comes home. Guess who the husband is? The same guy they pushed down the elevator shaft!

Once again, they run, as the irate husband pulls a gun and starts shooting. They wind up in an Army recruiting line. Once in the military, guess who their drill sergeant is? Yup. Now, he (Richard Fiske, who does a great job in here) gets revenge but they still drive him crazy, too.

This "setup" - the first half of this short movie - is the best part. The second half is okay but gets a little too silly at times. Overall, however, no matter how many times I've seen this, I still laugh at much of it. It is part of the "G.I. Stooge" DVD, the transfer on this is outstanding, too: one of the clearer pictures.
