Pretty good for a rehash...
23 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I've seen a lot of stooge fans rave about this short & proclaim it to be better than the original "Heavenly Daze." Personally, I didn't see it, but that's not to say this short is bad, but you get the feeling it could have been so much better, or to put it another way, I couldn't help but feel cheated when I saw so much stock footage from the original; a feeling I get from watching most of the Shemp recycles.

I think my biggest problem with this particular remake was the decision to entirely delete Sam McDaniel, who played the frightened butler in the original. That guy was so funny & definitely should have been used in more stooge shorts.

Phil Van Zandt does a pretty good job playing the devil & Shemp's dance with Helen Blazes is definitely a highlight of the film. Overall, one of the better Shemp remakes, but "Daze" is still light years ahead of it.
