The stooges are the 'Minute Menders', three tinkers who live under their car. The boys decide to drum up some business by punching holes in the unattended lunch boxes of some workmen. When they're caught in the act, they escape and accidentally get hired as riveters on a new building, working on the 97th floor. Their ineptitude and lousy workmanship screw up construction of the building and they must parachute off the building to escape the wrath of the boss. Written by

In the scene in which Curly is hit on the head with a rubber hammer when he is stuck in the sweater, if you look closely, Larry cracks up and laughs at the last BONK! on Curly's head. When Curly says, "Don't mind ME! DON'T MIND ME!!" He stares up at Moe, in which Moe starts to crack up as well and hides his face from the camera. Then the scene is cut to a close up. See more »
Three of the best riveters who ever riveted. Why didn't you tell them you were a groundhog?
Listen, you laugh when you say that!
HA, HA, HA.

The Three Stooges must have tried at least 50 to 100 occupations in their films, most of the time failing in them but sometimes accidentally succeeding and being heroes. Here, they are repairmen but, once again, not too successful. You can kind of tell in the opening scene when you see The Boys sleeping in the street, under their car! (At least they had pillows, mattresses and blankets!)
There are lines the Stooges used in here a few times that still make me laugh, a half century after I heard them the first time. For instance:
MOE: "Hey, jugglehead, did you get the tools? LARRY: "What tools? MOE: "The tools we've been using for the last 10 years." LARRY: "Oh, those tools.."
After a comedy skit that goes on too long, one involving trying to get Curly out of his tight sweater, the main "joke" of the film occurs: the boys being riveters on the 97th floor of a construction site.
It's there - on the beams way, way up - that we get some great slapstick gags, ones most people remember for a long time. Poor Curly. He's afraid of heights. You can imagine some of the scenes!
Actually, it was the sound-effects that made me laugh the hardest in this film, such as Curly crunching on a rivet that he thinks is a sausage.
Overall, definitely worth viewing (many times) if you are a Three Stooges fan.
