The stooges are the Wrong brothers, three inventors trying to finish building an airplane they can sell to the army and thereby avoid the draft. When their plane, the "Buzzard", turns out to be a flop, the boys are drafted into the army where they have trouble with a tough drill sergeant. Written by

The boys must produce a new "revolutionary" airplane, as promised, or they will be drafted into the military.
This "short" has the semi-famous Moe-as-a-big black-balloon skit in which he first floats to the top of the room and eventually out a skylight window has to be shot out of the sky by Curly.
It takes just over half the movie for the "Wrong Brothers" to get their plane, "The Buzzard," out of the hangar. Before that are bunch of verbal jokes and a lot of slapstick where the guys take turns taking a beating from something or someone. There's the old "Oh, oh, oh......oh, look" as we see the blades of saw all ruined after they were used on his head. That sort of thing.
With all three of these bozos in the small cockpit as the same time, you know their flight is going to wind up a disaster.
I was disappointed, however, to see the final three minutes is not original, a scene from a previous Stooges film called "Boobs In Arms." There is no need for that kind of cheapness from Columbia Pictures.
If you like the Three Stooges, you'll like this because it incorporates most of their sight gags and slapstick all within a 17-minute time frame, even if that last part is a "repeat," which still is inexcusable and makes me downgrade my final rating of this.
