A Very Funny Three Stooges Short With A Sick But Still Funny Curly!
5 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short on television a few years ago and I noticed that this was one of Curly's last ones, especially due to the fact that he was sounding very ill and was looking very sickly. On the bright side, this is a very funny Three Stooges short with a sick but still funny Curly! Though Curly was really not all there, he still was funny in this one, it was good to see that despite his strokes and his sickness, he still was able to pull things off, I was really surprised with this! This Three Stooges short was one that I got many big laughs out of, I thought that this was one of Curly's best of his years in which he was having all of those strokes!

I really loved this short, I remember that the first time that I watched this, I was really laughing my head off at it, this is not the greatest Three Stooges short ever made, perhaps due to Curly's sickness, but this is still a Three Stooges short that really promises you some pretty big laughs out-loud! Out of all of the Three Stooges shorts that I have seen in my life, I have really managed to get a lot of laughs out of them!

Here is something that I would really like to tell you fans of the Three Stooges, if you want to see a short with an ill Curly, but though sick he can still be funny, then this is one for you! You are really going to be laughing and laughing at it because this is very funny! I really recommend that you see this, it is very hysterical!

10/10
