Storyline

Set in a desert land where the stooges run a restaurant, the boys need money to pay their fiancée's taxes, or the girls will be sold as slaves. Some crooks come into their restaurant and convince the boys to recover the stolen Rootin Tootin diamond. The stooges decide to return the diamond to the government and get the reward money. They learn that the Emir of Shmo has absconded with the contraband jewel. They journey to the stronghold of Shmo where they disguise as Santa Clauses and scare the ruler into giving them the diamond.

The worst Shemp short
28 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was terribly pathetic! The new footage in the beginning sucks because it is just Moe and Larry waking up and reassuring their girlfriends that they will not be sold into slavery, and their girlfriends' weeping is so annoying. Plus, there is a stupid excuse why Shemp is not in that scene! The only part that is merely okay is the scene in which the guard is chasing the Shemp double in circles.

Grade: D-
