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 <>

a classic
25 March 2000 | by (michigan) – See all my reviews

"In the Sweet Pie and Pie" is a classic Three Stooges short. Here's the plot (not that plot matters much for the Stooges): Three wealthy sisters can only receive their inheritance if they get married by a certain night. With their boyfriends out of town, they decide to marry some convicts who are about to be hanged the next day. Enter Moe, Larry, and Curley. And enter big laughs.

I daresay this is one of the funniest Stooges shorts I've ever seen. It has it all: silly one-liners, plenty of slapping and poking, and of course, a magnificent pie-throwing battle. If you're a fan of the Three Stooges, you will certainly enjoy this insane work of comedic art.
