So Hysterical! Hard Not To Like!, 26 November 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

There is something strange I noticed about this short, I noticed that all of the parts where played by The Three Stooges! Well I think that they did a fabulous job playing all of the parts in this short, because that only made it better! Well getting on with my review, I though that this was something really enjoyable and hysterical! I really though that I was going to die from laughter while I was watching this, because this is got laughs and laughs all over the place, this is like a quarter of an hour carnival ride! Boy this is so hysterical, I don't know where I would be if I hadn't seen it!

It is a pity that the Three Stooges didn't make more shorts like this one, because they probably would have been hysterical! Well anyway, this is hysterical, and so I give this a perfect score of ten stars out of ten for being another great short from the Three Stooges! This is just about as good as you'll get from the Three Stooges!

I loved this, and the chances are you will as well! I also know of one person who loves this, that person is Movie Nutball, while I like a lot of the Three Stooges shorts, I don't like all of them, unlike Movie Nutball, he seems to like every single movie that exists in the world, no matter how bad they might be.
