The Three Stooges Have Done It Again!, 13 August 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

That's right, The Three Stooges have done it again! What I mean by that is that have perfected another short film that is totally and completely hysterical from the very beginning to the very end! And not only that, but Shemp is at one of his best in this short, because he was funnier this time around than some other times that I have seen him. Would I recommend this Three Stooges short film to fans of the Three Stooges? I totally and entirely would do it, because you are going to be laughing and laughing and laughing like crazy when they do watch it! I was laughing so hard the first time I saw this that I was crying with laughter, in fact, I was even in some slight pain!

This Three Stooges short film is the best of 1950 in my opinion, because though I have loved all of the shorts that the Three Stooges released in 1950, this one seems to stand out the most!

You need to watch this if you love the Three Stooges, because the laughs are totally huge in this riot filled short film! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you do all sorts of things when you watch this hysterical film! So all in all, this is another great installment for the very ludicrous Three Stooges!
