Joe might just be the biggest jerk in this one!
15 October 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In all the Joe McDoakes shorts, Joe is pretty dumb. However, in this one he's also unbelievably thoughtless and selfish.

The story begins with the narrator recounting Joe's marriage ten years ago. They went from a happy couple to a sad wife due to her incredibly selfish husband. Alice McDoakes wants to make her marriage better but everything her counselor tells her to do backfires because Joe is a completely hopeless jerk. In fact, when she ultimately leaves him, weeks pass before Joe even realizes it!! What's next? See the short...and see the wacky finale.

All in all, this is a very good installment. The ending seems pretty lame...but hold tight, it's a corker!
