After Moe falls in the well, the film dissolves to the three men back at work on the airplane, and Moe is wearing the same jumpsuit as at the beginning of the short. But earlier, he had it covered in rubber cement, inflated with gas, and he left it floating mid-air when he was blasted out of it, so how could he get back into the same jumpsuit? See more »

The Wrong brothers building an airplane is a great idea, and the stooges do their classic comedy for most of this short. But when they crash their plane and the writers ran out of ideas, they had to recycle footage from Boobs in Arms to pad out the rest of the running time.
While there's nothing terribly bad about this, it's so obvious. The tone of the whole short changes. The ending--with the boys in the army--has absolutely nothing to do with what's gone before. They obviously recorded the introduction--Moe reading a draft letter--to try to make the ending somehow be related to the rest of the movie.
I only wish they had worked a little harder on an original ending--it would have made the short a true gem. But this ending is a let-down, so it's difficult to give it all the love I want to give it. I guess they just ran out of time.
