Storyline

Told in flashback, Moe is on trial for assaulting Larry and Joe. It seems that Moe was in debt and suffering a nervous breakdown so Larry and Joe took him to the country for rest and relaxation. After a marauding bear ruined the peace and quiet, their cabin became the scene of a shoot-out between the sheriff and an escaped outlaw. The boys captured the bad guy, and the reward would have paid Moe's debts, but the crook escaped and Moe went after Larry and Joe with an ax. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Weak remake of "Idiots DeLuxe"
21 January 2002 | by (San Ramon, CA) – See all my reviews

This remake of "Idiots DeLuxe"(1945) that had Curly this time is redone with Joe Besser. There were a few good scenes, like the gunfight scenes, but that was it. The ending is one of the weakest in a stooge short ever. You must see it to believe how weak it was. The other scenes are either old footage or rehashed scenes that were originally in "Idiots DeLuxe" with Joe Besser. These scenes were also redone quite poorly. Overall a very weak effort.

Grade: D
