one of the best remakes, 13 July 2003
Author: csweetleaf2 from Walla Walla, WA

When I was watching this short one afternoon I thought that it was a very good short but it falls a bit short of being a classic cause I noticed that Larry takes more of Moe's wrath than Shemp, although I've only seen the edited version on the Family Channel, it is my understanding that Shemp does get hit but only once, and there is one scene when Shemp destroys the pipes and Moe doesn't even hit him, I found that surprising and the subplot of Kenneth MacDonald and Christine McIntyre wanting to steal an expensive painting keeps the short more exciting.

Although there aren't alot of classic moments in this short but this short overall is well done and fast paced and who cares that it's a remake of the classic Curly short A Plumbing We Will Go, this is a good Shemp short although I prefer Scheming Schemers (remake) more than this short.

8/10
