An Unnecessary Remake Of A Hysterical Shemp Short.
14 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With all of these titles like Flying Saucer Daffy, Space Ship Sappy, Pies And Guys, and Triple Crossed, it's pretty obvious that The Three Stooges' fire was now just smoldering wood by now. Triple Crossed is yet another Stooge short that has almost no laughs in it. It's just a remake of the funnier He Cooked His Goose, and again, Joe tries to imitate Shemp, just like he did in Rusty Romeos and Fifi Blows Her Top, and as you might have expected, he's not Shemp, nor should he try to be Shemp.

This was the second last Stooge short, and this proves it, because it's not funny, and the quality of it is very cheap, it also shows how much the short films department had declined at this point, as they were running out of good ideas and so they had to remake a lot of the earlier classics. In the new footage, Moe and Larry look bored and like they don't want to be hear, and Joe is as usual, as annoying as ever: "Not so loooouuuuudd!" So annoying.

Bottom Line: Triple Crossed will probably triple cross you. It tries to present itself as a hysterical Stooge short, but it is not a hysterical Stooge short, it's a really unfunny Stooge short. Watch this one if you want to watch it, but you may find Joe to be annoying, as he is definitely no Shemp Howard. Or better, watch the original He Cooked His Goose with Shemp, that is a funnier film, no doubt about that.
