Storyline

The stooges are three inventors trying to a get a patent on their preposterous fly catching invention. When they learn they'll have to catch 100,000 flies to earn enough to get a patent, some crooks overhear and think the boys are the $100,000 sweepstakes winners. When the crooks give chase, the stooges hide in a sporting goods store where Curly shoots a dummy, which they mistake for a real person. The boys decide to bury the "body" in a pet cemetery, but the cemetery owner arrives from a costume party with his partners, all dressed as spooks, and they proceed to scare the devil out of the stooges.

One Of The Funniest Three Stooges Short Films Of 1945!
15 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To all fans of the Three Stooges, is this short really hysterical to watch and enjoy? Well let me tell you, YES! Three Pests In A Mess is totally and completely hysterical all the way through from start to finish! This short is honestly one of the funniest Three Stooges short films of the year 1945! This is like a carnival ride from start to finish, there are laughs all over this short, from the very beginning of it to the very end of it! This is something really hysterical to watch and enjoy, because in my point of view, you won't be able to stop laughing when you watch this short! Because in my point of view, this is so hysterical from beginning to end! It is one of the best of the last shorts with Curly!

So if you are an extremely huge fan of the Three Stooges, the chances are you are going to find this to be extremely hysterical just like I did! So watch this short and enjoy it, because you are really going to find it hysterical!

10/10
