The silly stone age romeos!
19 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

I'M A MONKEY'S UNCLE is one of the Three Stooges' funniest shorts. I'm a fan of Shemp, and this is one of his greats. The funniest part is when Dee Green tackles Shemp so he'll fall in love with her.

This is a great stooge short. Watch for it on AMC or on Columbia Home Video.

**** out of 4 stars!
