Shemp and Rosco are husbands who married sisters and all live with the wive's mother. The husbands have been out late at night drinking and are trying hard no to make any noise as they slip back into the house, where the mother-in-law is guarding the door armed with a rolling pin. But they get into a neighbor's house and the lady in that house has a very large, jealous husband. Written by

I recently bought a couple collections of Vitaphone short comedies from the 1930s and I can now see why Turner Classic Movies rarely shows any of them...they are, with only a few exceptions, terribly unfunny. Fortunately, this final movie on one of the discs made me laugh and actually holds up very well today.
Shemp Howard plays Johnny, an office boy who is very eager to become one of their process servers in the field. However, no one except for his fiancée takes him seriously. But, after Muscleboud Pete pulverizes all their process servers, the boss reluctantly allows Johnny the chance to serve Pete with court papers...or die trying. What follows is a surprisingly funny and enjoyable short with Johnny trying many different ways to outsmart his psychopathic quarry. Well worth seeing...especially when Johnny tries going in drag to surprise Pete!!
