Storyline

Larry, Moe, and Curly Joe work for an editor at a Boston wildlife conservation magazine. They make such a mess of the pressroom that their publisher gets rid of them by sending them out west to stop the slaughter of buffalo. Upon their arrival they find themselves being sought after by every notorious gunslinger in history, including Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickcock, and Jesse James. Luckily, pistol-packing Annie Oakley, who has fallen in love with the handsome editor, agrees to protect them against the bad guys. Written by Robert Lynch <docrlynch@yahoo.com>

A beautiful mockery of traditional westerns
25 March 2000 | by (michigan) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Three Stooges movies. Plus, Adam West is great in his non-Batman role.

There really isn't much to analyze here. It's just meant to be a fun romp through the old west. And fun it is. Pretty much every gunslinger and bandit from historical westerns makes an appearance, and the climatic gun fight at the end is classic comedy. And of course, there's a great pie fight.
