Great Remake!, 7 December 2010
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

I really loved Ants In The Pantry, and when I saw the remake, Pest Man Wins, I also really loved it, I mean that this short is a great short in its own right! I mean that there is rarely a time where a remake is as good as the original, because after all, Lightning Never Strikes In The Same Place Twice. But it did here! I mean that I was laughing and laughing like crazy all throughout the course of this hysterical short! This Three Stooges short is a hysterical time from start to finish, there are a lot of laughs to be seen and a lot of great gags!

Well all in all, this is probably one of the better Stooge remakes that there has ever been, because there is rarely a time where the remake can be better or just as good as the original, well this one was just as good as the original, so I guess that this short is just an exception! And now that I own it on DVD as part of The Three Stooges Collection, Volume Six, I can watch it at any time!

Well if you love the Three Stooges, and if you loved Ants In The Pantry, then you are probably going to love this as well! Well watch this and enjoy it, because out of all of the Stooge shorts that were remakes of early ones, this is just as about as good as they can get!

Hysterical!

10/10
