Storyline

An eccentric scientist tricks the stooges into joining himself and his daughter on an expedition to Venus. On Venus, the boys go exploring and encounter some cannibalistic amazons who plan to devour them. The stooges escape and take off in the spaceship which goes wildly out of control. As the ship is about to crash, the scene changes to the annual meeting of the Liars Club, where the stooges win the prize as the biggest liars in the world.

For 1957, pretty funny, and even a bit risque.

Most Stooges fans shrug off the shorts that were done after Curly Howard's departure from the trio. But Joe Besser, who replaced Shemp Howard, after Shemp stepped in for Curly, is not bad at all. He's got his own unique mannerisms, almost effeminate or childish, but not overbearing. The idea of three Amazons overpowering the guys in this film and then tying them up and tickling their bare feet was pretty far out stuff for the Stooges! It was done innocently enough, but the Amazons were out to tickle the boys to death, then eat them! Could've been entitled the "Femdoms Attack the Three Stooges." There is an overpowering sexual overtone here that can't be denied. Aggressive women with the men as sex objects, albeit the Three Stooges! But beyond that, the short has got some typical Stooge slapstick and dialog that keeps it amusing and makes one glad that the group didn't retire too early. Give it a chance!
