Storyline

The stooges are bumbling electricians who decide to go away for a rest after they are fired for their incompetence. The rest home they choose is run by Dr. Mallard, a quack who cheats the patients for everything they've got. When the boys discover the crooked goings on they escape, but not before Curly accidentally cures another patient who rewards him with a thousand dollars. When Curly suggests using the money to go away for a rest, Moe and Larry promptly clobber him. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Quotes

Moe: [after a loud crash is heard in the other room, you see Curly with a ladder fallen down on top of him] You lame brain, why don't you be careful when you climb up a ladder?
Curly: I only climbed up seven steps.
Moe: That ladder had six!
[slaps Curly on top of the head]
Smiling Sam McGann: What's going on here?
[Moe and Larry drop the pipes they are holding onto Curly's head]
Smiling Sam McGann: Listen, you jugheads. The lights are still out in my office. I want juice and I want it right away!
Curly: Here you are.

We should go somewhere for a nice long rest...
21 June 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Monkey Businessmen (1946) stars Moe, Larry, and Curly. This is a very good stooge short which has the three stooges taking a break from work and going to a little resort. Dr. Mallard is a quack who is not really doing anything for his patients except taking their money. Moe, Larry, and Curly have some great bits in this one. The one that stands out in my mind is when Curly eats the thermometer!

(Larry takes Curly's temperature) Moe: What is it? Larry: 90 proof!

I love the stooges and you will love this one too! Watch for it on home video or on AMC.
