a classic, 25 March 2000
Author: courtad6 from michigan

"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.
