Storyline

The stooges don't know it, but they are all engaged to the same girl, a gold-digger who plans to get an engagement ring from each of them and then abandon them. When all three show up at her house at the same time, a wild fight ensues, as each stooge accuses the others of making time with "his" girl. The stooges knock each other senseless and the girl escapes with their rings. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Highly entertaining.
25 October 2001 | by (northridge, ca) – See all my reviews

"Corny Casanovas" is a very enjoyable Stooge short with lots of laughs from beginning to end. The Stooges are all in love with the same gorgeous girl, but they don't know it, and there are plenty of good laughs as they get ready to visit their lady. But the laughs really explode when they realize their situation and start fighting over her. I just about hit the floor when I first saw Larry continuously pounding Moe in the head with a shovel (Moe's previous brutality finally comes back to haunt him). Another great scene is Shemp's ultra-slick moonwalk, which he does terrifically in this episode (much better than Curly ever did it). "Corny Casanovas" will indeed satisfy.
