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

'How High Is Up?' is not my favorite Three Stooges short but it is a nice entry. Moe, Larry and Curly are the 'Minute Menders', they repair anything. They sleep under their own car, which leads to the first nice moment. When they really go to work no one will hire them so Larry punches holes in lunch boxes of workmen hoping they will hire them. Of course they get caught and when they are trying to get away they accidentally sign up for some work on 97th floor of a building that is still under construction. Especially Curly has some trouble with the height.
Although the start of this short is terrific and the ending on the building is very good too, the middle part is a little too slow. Fortunately once they are on that building there are enough laughs again and that makes this comedy short worth watching.
