Would You Buy A Used Chariot From These Guys? One Of The Best Of The Stooges Films
8 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only mummy in here is Shemp dressed up as such in the last minute or two of the film. Otherwise, it is a bunch of stories and comedy bits all strung together - but most of them are very good, making this one of the better Stooges films from their latter years.

The boys are back in ancient Egypt days - " in the reign of King Rootentooten." They are used chariot salesmen and, yes, they give all the clichés you have heard from used car salesmen over the years. It's pretty comical, especially when they con some poor sap into buying this piece of junk for 400 shekels. Unfortunately, the joke is on the them as the "sucker" works for the king. He has their butts hauled in, and the king gives his okay to "throw them to the crocodiles." But, the king also is in pain with a toothache so Moe comes up with a last-minute plea, saying Shemp is a dentist and can fix his aching tooth! Shemp, known as "Painless Papyrus," according to Moe, dons his thick glasses attempts dentistry. Yikes, this is painful to watch, but things work out, the king is thrilled and the boys are given their freedom.

Later, they discover two of the king's helpers are cooks and there is a mad three-minute chase involving the capture of them.

All of it, from the subtle stuff to the slapstick finale, are pretty good. Believe it or not, the dialog is here also is clever at times with a number of good puns.
