Shemp at his worst.
24 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

HULA-LA-LA is the worst Shemp short I've seen so far. I don't like the plot on this one. There's only one funny line in the whole short. If you want an African stooge short, watch THREE MISSING LINKS or SOME MORE OF SAMOA.

* out of 4 stars.
