Here Come the Judge, there go the Stooges
7 July 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Listen Judge finds Moe, Larry and Shemp before Judge Vernon Dent on a chicken stealing and vagrancy rap. Later on the boys decide to go into home repair as itinerant workers, usually the kind in the real world that are labeled scam artists. Anyone that hires these guys ought to have their head examined.

But a woman who does all of a sudden is thrown for a loop by a surprise party she has to throw for her husband. Naturally the boys are ever willing to help.

Some really good gags are Shemp getting charged up and then having Moe short circuit him. Also Larry and Shemp try to deal with a floating cake that these geniuses reflate with gas.

The finale is when said cake explodes on TV's Perry White from the Superman series, John Hamilton. Seeing that always dignified man dripping in cake remnants is a great laugh.

Stooges fans the world over will love this one.
