There is a lot to like about this movie. Two of the stooges are in it. A couple of real-life prize fighters. And, a couple of real-life big game hunters...
The plot is simple, sweet and stupid: Lou has a map memorized and he is forced on safari because everyone assumes it is a different map. He encounters lions, tough guys, crocodiles and big-game hunters. Bud Abbott is in the movie as well, being unbelievably horrible to his best friend...
Not as many "routines" in this one, but a lot of solid comedy. Joe Besser gives a few out-loud laughs, as well. Shemp is great as the blind mobster.
This was from a particularly fertile time for the duo. Well worth a watch...
