The stooges decide to get some easy money by having Curly slip on a bar of soap in a hotel lobby so they can sue the owner. Curly slips as planned but the hotel turns out to be run by an old lady who is about to lose her lease to the evil landlord. The stooges decide to help her fix up the place and start by beating up the landlord and stealing his watch. After their usual antics in renovating the place, the hotel is ready for the grand re-opening. The stooges put on a big show with a famous critic in attendance. Their corny act goes over poorly until Curly accidentally puts on a magicians coat and becomes a sensation and the place is a success. Written by Mitch Shapiro <>

One Very Hysterical Three Stooges Short That Promises A Lot Of Big Laughs!
31 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One New Years Eve, American Movie Classics was showing a marathon of Three Stooges shorts was a way to kick off the New Year, and this was one of the ones that they showed. I knew that this short would be funny just by the title, and so I really got curious into seeing if this short was as funny as it was supposed to be, and so I can say that I was really laughing at this short, this is one very hysterical Three Stooges short that promises a lot of big laughs! I was really laughing myself silly at this Three Stooges short, this is not one of their best, but it is still a very hysterical one that I got a lot of big laughs out of!

Like with a lot of the 1940's Three Stooges short films that I have seen over the course of over ten years, this is one short that really was causing me to fall on the floor with laughter! I have seen more than three dozen Three Stooges shorts in my life, with Curly and Shemp, and I have really managed to get a ton of laughs out of all of the ones that I have seen!

Here is another short that has the Three Stooges that if you see you will love and will be laughing your head off at it like I was! This Three Stooges short is very hysterical and riot filled, you really must see this hysterical one!
