The stooges are three small time actors looking for a job. They meet three girl dancers in the situation and get a small part in a big producers show at the shipyard. When the rest of the cast doesn't show up, the stooges and the girls must put on the whole show themselves. The show is a hit and the stooges marry the girls and head to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon. Written by

"Niagara Falls" was actually filmed one year earlier for the Columbia feature film Good Luck, Mr. Yates (1943). Cut from the final release version of that film, Jules White retained the footage and built this film around it. See more »

Anything with Curly in it is worth watching, which is why I gave it a 5, but overall this one has more minuses than pluses. The musical numbers are lame ("Rat-Tat-Toodle") at best and awful ("Just Stopped in to Say Hello") at worst, the three acrobatic dancers thrown in for the "love interest" aren't particularly good (or all that attractive), and some scenes--the bathtub scene, for example, and the "Hello" musical number in Manny Weeks' office--seem so out of place that you wonder what they're doing there at all. The Stooges' "Niagara Falls" routine is funny, but it's too short (hate to disagree with other posters, but Abbott & Costello did it much better in "Lost in a Harem")--they should have cut out the stupid musical numbers and the World War I skit (which was almost completely unfunny) and lengthened the "Niagara Falls" skit. The girls' stunt dancing is OK at first then starts to get boring.
Other than the "Niagara Falls" skit--which is funny thanks entirely to Curly--this short has nothing much going for it. Worth a watch, but not something you'd want to see again (unlike, for example, their superb "Micro-Phonies", which I never get tired of watching).
