A complete embarrassment for the guys
23 September 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The shorts the Stooges made toward the end of their careers were universally terrible. The budgets were slashed to almost the point of invisibility, and as a previous poster has said, the boys were old, tired and past their prime. This actually looks more like a "trial balloon," as it were, for the "talents" of one Muriel Landers, who plays Tiny. She is neither talented nor tiny. She is a short, heavyset woman who is given a number where she sings and dances and proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that she can do neither. Something else she can't do is act--there's one scene where she sticks her finger in her mouth and starts talking baby talk, which is embarrassing, uncomfortable and, frankly, creepy. Moe has his hair slicked back and plays (badly, to be honest) a German/Austrian/whatever psychiatrist. There are virtually no production values--the whole film looks like it was shot in a dark, ill-lit corner of the studio somewhere. There is not one even remotely funny line in this film--not ONE. Moe and Larry look like they're trying to give it their best, but they were either too old, too tired, too discouraged, or a combination of all three, and their best in this case wasn't even remotely good enough. This is a complete embarrassment, and if you love the Stooges as much as I and a lot of others do, spare yourself the sad spectacle of watching a comedy team that was once at the top reduced to participating in this sad excuse for a comedy in order to pay the rent. Watch some of their masterpieces from the '30s and '40s with Curley, or even some of the later ones with Shemp, but whatever you do, avoid this one like the plague. Remember the Stooges as they were in their prime, and not suffering the indignity of having to make this pathetic, embarrassing and, finally, sad mess.
