Storyline

The stooges are window washers who lose their jobs after Moe impersonates the dentist in whose office they were cleaning. On the run, they are hired by a millionaire to pose as children. It seems the man's wife wants to adopt some refugees to impress her society friends. Moe is Johnny, Curly is Frankie and Larry is Mabel. Everything goes fairly well as the lady shows off the stooges to her friends, but they finally irritate her husband so much that he goes after them with an ax.

Funny Stooges' Short
19 June 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

All the World's a Stooge (1941)

*** (out of 4)

Classic short from The Three Stooges starts off with them working as window cleaners in a dentist office and sure enough a man comes in mistaken them for the doctor. After removing and replacing his teeth, the man asks the three to come back to his house and pretend to be refugee children so that his wife will be happy but of course things don't turn out too good. As with a lot of the Stooges shorts, this one here really breaks down into two one reelers with each half containing some good stuff. Of the two I think I preferred the first half inside the dentist office because we're treated to all sorts of funny gags including the boys accidentally letting cement dry inside the man's mouth and they must come up with a way to free it. Another funny gag involves them having to make a getaway and there being a cop that gets in the way. The second half of the film gets off to a great start simply by seeing Moe and Larry in a Little Lord Fauntleroy outfit with Larry in drag! Fans of the Stooges should really enjoy this short and if you're new to the group then this is also a nice place to start.
