Classic Stooges!!!, 15 June 1999
Author: Matt-183

One of the best Stooges shorts made, Larry, Moe and Curly attempt to escape a botched magic show by becoming ad hoc plumbers. Chaos ensues (of course) when they are hired to fix a leak in a basement which quickly turns into a massive disaster. By no means the best movie ever made, but I still give it high ratings.
