Funny, yes. But not their best.
13 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the start, this looks like something that was maybe intended for a guest shot on the Frank Sinatra Show or something else of the time. Why? The whole short has only one scene, the police station. The gags are all there but disjointed because of a lack of any story or plot. Granted, the Stooges didn't use much plot or story to begin with but when it gets this "thin", it's very noticeable. This looks like one that was just "rushed through" in order to meet contractual obligations. This is nothing new for the boys at Columbia during the 1950's. Skimpy script, poor sets, poor direction and writing. In other words, little or no budget. It's OK but certainly far from being one of their better shorts.
