Storyline

The stooges are convicts about to be executed for some murders they didn't commit. The day before the execution they are tricked into marrying three rich girls who need husbands to collect a legacy. At the last minute the real murderers confess and the stooges are pardoned. The girls are now stuck with the stooges so they plot to get rid of them by making them become gentlemen. The girl's lawyer convinces them to throw a big party in the hope that the stooges will humiliate them and they can get a divorce. The boys do just that as the party degenerates into a wild pie fight. But the girls decide to keep the stooges and give their lawyer the boot. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Excellent Three Stooges short!
3 July 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

This is one of My favorite Three Stooges shorts of all time! The Stooges are extremely funny! I was amazing how Mary Ainslee and Ethelreda Leopold really looked like sisters and how Richard Fiske acted so differently. Vernon Dent, Symona Boniface, Dorothy Appleby, Eddie Laughton, Geneva Mitchell, Al Thompson, and Lynton Brent are also in this one. I saw some of this at one of My large theaters which has a huge screen and it was something else to see this one on the big screen! There are so many hilarious scenes! This is a great Three Stooges short!
