Decent short has Moe, Larry and Curly getting engaged but before they can plan the wedding the Civil War breaks out. Moe and Larry sign up to fight for the North but Curly signs for the South. Moe and Curly decide to switch sides but they must try and avoid other soldiers who have taken over the city.
UNCIVIL WAR BIRDS isn't the greatest Stooges short out there but there are enough laughs to make it worth sitting through if you're a fan of the series. If you're new to The Three Stooges then this isn't the place to start. With that said, this short has a few very funny moments thanks in large part to Curly and his comic timing. There are some great moments where his dumbness leaves everyone around him going nuts. The scene with the firing squad is a perfect example. The material itself isn't the greatest and while there aren't any huge laughs there's still enough to make this worth sitting through.
