Very Funny! Very, Very Funny! Funny, Funny, Funny! And Even More Funny!
2 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this Three Stooges short film from the year of 1940 like a lot of other shorts starring the Three Stooges, I was watching TV when I first saw this, and I was really in pain from a lot of laughter! I will sum up this short in one sentence: Very funny, very, very funny, funny, funny, funny, and even more funny! I thought that this short film was really a laugh-fest, it is filled with SOOOOOOOOOOOO many laughs, that you are really going to be paralyzed with laughter! This short is one of their best from 1940, the best one remains A Plumbing We Will Go, but this one is still really a great one all the same, I thought that this short was brilliant!

Get ready for this! You are really going to be laughing and laughing your head off when you watch this really hysterical Three Stooges short, you are going to be laughing so hard, that you are probably going to be crying, or that no sound will come out! If I laughed myself silly when I watched this short, then you probably will laugh yourself silly as well when you watch this, you are going to be crying with laughter when you do watch this!

Overall, this is another really hysterical installment in the Three Stooges short film series that is really a remarkable time!

10/10
