That's the question that Larry asks Moe after giving him a piece of cheese laced with rat poison. "Pest Man Wins" is a rarity in the fact that it's a remake that tops the original "Ants in the Pantry" with Curly.

Now "Ants" was a very good film in its own right, but here in "Pest" the short moves a bit quicker, the redone gags are a little funnier than they were in the original (see the hilarious "Clap and Dance" routine when Vernon Dent gets a mouse down his shirt) and there's a big pie fight at the end.

If I had one quibble with the film is that maybe Jules White reused a little too much stock footage during the pie fight instead of inserting more new shots of Shemp, but as I said it's only a minor gripe.

"Pest Man Wins" is a first rate job. Fans of the stooges should really enjoy this one.
