This is NOT the 'Love At First Bite' You May be Thinking Of, 21 May 2010
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

Random thoughts about this Three Stooges short.....

"Love At First Bite" was the name of a very funny and popular Dracula spoof feature-length film put out in 1979 and starring Richard Benjamin and George Hamilton IV. The title here refers to Larry recalling how he met his bride-to-be at a restaurant in Italy......Meanwhile, Christine McIntyre with the pigtails and German accent (Vienna) reminded me a little of Teri Garr in "Young Frankenstein," except not quite as revealing.

The boys are all pumped up because they are going to get married shortly, a familiar tune in the Three Stooges shorts over the years. In fact, it's their wedding day and they are sprucing up the house. The fiancés are coming over later on a boat. (Don't ask; I didn't write this script.) The comedy skits include gum in Moe's ear and then his nose and then all over him; a horseshoe falling and hitting Larry in head and then bouncing back up to the spot on the wall above the door where it hung. Actually, the horseshoe bit is played three different times.

I didn't think it was that humorous to hear Moe make the noises that Curly used to make - it just doesn't fit. I did laugh at Shemp's line, just has he about to be dynamited. "Will it hurt?," he asks just prior to being blown up.

I thought the most clever bits in this film were (1) Larry trying to eat spaghetti, with a strong fan going nearby and (2) the ending with poor Shemp rocking back and forth in a semi-circle of cement, but giving more than he was taking.
