Funny short
28 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a pretty funny short, Moe throwing a knife into Shemp's rear is a hoot! The dinner scene was a little funny, but the "musical food" bit was just plain silly. The part in which the stooges are running their auto-mechanic shop is pretty violent for a stooge short. But it was still pretty funny, and the fight at the end was also great. But they could've spared us the cheesy 3-D, at least the 3-D has improved slightly since the first 3-D stooge short, "Spooks". I highly recommend this short to any three stooges fan.

Grade: B+
