Woah Moe...
11 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is one of only two original Moe, Larry, Shemp shorts released in 1954. Moe is at his grouchy best in the start of this picture, tearing on Larry & Shemp with seemingly little provocation. I also enjoy some of the little asides in this short, like Shemp's "always hitting, picking, doing that, everything" after Moe orders him to get a cup of coffee or Larry's little mumblings while putting mustard on a hotdog.

As previously mentioned, Shemp's part is reduced bigtime at the dinner party, but Moe, Larry, and the hilarious Benny Rubin more than pick up the slack. "You are very loose eater".

I rate this one a 8/10.

Btw, for the IMDb people, your trivia note for this short actually belongs under "Heavenly Daze".
