Storyline

The stooges don't know it, but they are all engaged to the same girl, a gold-digger who plans to get an engagement ring from each of them and then abandon them. When all three show up at her house at the same time, a wild fight ensues, as each stooge accuses the others of making time with "his" girl. The gold-digger gets it in the end (literally) with tacks shot from a repeating rifle. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Corny Casanovas Is WAY Better.
14 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joe Besser is at another one of his terrible imitations, in Guns A Popping, he tried and failed at imitating Curly, and in this one, he tried and failed to imitate Shemp. And much like that, Rusty Romeos is not good at all, it's a terrible remake of the hysterical Corny Casanovas. Joe Besser is no Curly Howard, and he is no Shemp Howard either, and he isn't funny when acts normally, in this short, he is his usual whiny and complaining self.

What Shemp did so right in the original is ruined by Joe in this remake, all of the hysterical gags that Shemp did fell horribly flat when Joe did them, it's terrible. What ever convinced Moe and Larry to accept Joe as a Stooge? I have no idea, and I wish that they would not have done that, as Joe was just not funny. I gave Joe his chance, several times over in fact, and he failed me every time, that man was funny on The Abbott And Costello Show, but he was terrible as a Stooge.

If you loved the original (and I am sure that you did), and have watched it repeatedly (which I am also sure that you did), avoid this remake. Because you will not find it funny, you will find it to be a poor remake of Shemp classic. I understand that the short film department at this time was running out of money, but couldn't they had been able to make new ones that were good rather than remake all of the older classics? Bottom Line: Don't watch this one, you probably won't like it.

3/10
