A Great Short In Its Own Right!, 13 August 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

A Plumbing We Will Go has always been one of my all time favorite Three Stooges shorts, but then I heard about this short, and decided to see it. Now speaking as a person who loves the Three Stooges, this short is just as funny as the original! This short is a laugh fest from the very beginning of this short to the very end of this short! A Plumbing We Will Go is better than this short in my opinion, but I still thought that this one was very hysterical! So all in all, the Three Stooges have once again perfected another extremely laugh out-loud hysterical short film that is totally and completely a great time! While A Plumbing We Will Go is perhaps the best short with Curly, this short is one of the best with Shemp! I like Curly a lot, but Shemp is my favorite Third Stooge, he's hysterical, he's SHEMP!

Though a remake of one of my favorite short films, this short is great in its own right. because the new plot is fabulous! Only the Three Stooges could have done something like this, not Abbott and Costello, nor Laurel and Hardy, only the Three Stooges could have pulled something off like this! So anyway, though the original is a better short, this one is still hysterical and is filled with laughs, and when I mean laughs, I mean lots and lots of laughs!

If you loved A Plumbing We Will Go, then the chances are you that you are going to love this one as well! Shemp has some of the best scenes and lines in this short, in fact, he was just as good as when Curly did those lines! So all in all, the Three Stooges have made another hysterical short film with lots of laughs in it! You've got to watch this one when you get the chance to, because you won't regret it!
