Storyline

Shemp is a sick man with a bad case of nerves. The stooge's friend Claude, a self-taught healer, tries to cure Shemp with various home- made remedies. When nothing seems to work, Claude suggests they buy his old lemon of a car so they can take Shemp on a trip to the country. The car won't start, and the trip never gets off the ground, but not to worry, Shemp is cured by all the excitement. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Funny, but different.
19 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

WHAM BAM SLAM is a remake of PARDON MY CLUTCH from 1948. The short is very good, but there's a lack of excitement. The "Pancake-on-the-ceiling" gag worked better in MOVIE MANIACS. Overall, a pretty good short.

*** out of 4 stars.
