The Three Stooges Have Really Done It Now!!!!!, 2 April 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

This is another Three Stooges short film that for many years I was really wanting to see, and so one day I actually did get to see it, and considering that I had heard that it was a pretty funny one, I really became interested about seeing it. When I was watching this short, I was really laughing and laughing all the way through it! This Three Stooges short is a laugh out-loud hysterical short that will leave you paralyzed with laughter! And now that I own this one on DVD as a short of the Three Stooges Collection Volume 3, I can watch this any time I want and really get some laughs out of it!

But boy, the Three Stooges have really done it now! I am going to say something that is going to be pretty obvious but it is just funny to hear all the same, the Three Stooges are no hairstylists, they are more like three saps who can really make a mess out of doing hair! Warning: When you got out and bump into three men who look exactly like the Three Stooges and they are offering to help you, don't let them do it, because you are really going to regret it!

If you are really a huge fan of Moe, Larry, and Curly, then you are really going to love this Three Stooges short film, you will be laughing out loud at it, you will love it! Just trust me, you are really going to enjoy this Three Stooges short!
