Storyline

The stooges are tree surgeons who are enlisted by a rich old man to find a mate for his rare puckerless persimmon tree. The boys sail to the tropical island of Rhum-Boogie to find the tree. When they arrive they are captured by the natives and will be eaten unless Curly marries the Chief's ugly daughter. The stooges escape with the tree and, after a confrontation with an alligator, sail off with their prize. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Some More of Samoa (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The Three Stooges play tree surgeons who are offered a job by a crazy old man who is in love with his special tree and wants the boys to find it a mate. The Stooges head off for a jungle where they find the tree but with it are cannibals and an alligator. SOME MORE OF SAMOA isn't a classic and there are many dry spots throughout it but there are enough laughs scattered around to make it worth viewing. If you're new to the trio then it's best that you don't start here since it really doesn't show the boys at their very best but fans should get enough laughs out of it. I think the highlight of the film comes towards the end when the tree falls into the mouth of an alligator and the boy have to find a way to get it back without losing any of their limbs. The scenes with Curly attempting to get it back are quite funny as are the scenes where the cannibals are about to cook him after he refuses to marry the chief's extremely ugly sister. The first half of the show is pretty much misses in regards to laughs, although the surgery sequence with the old man got a few chuckles.
