The boys miss out on the reward but wind up with the crook's bankroll and can pay their creditors. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Good Laughs From Standard Stooges Material
26 October 2005 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

Moe, Larry, and Shemp use comic timing and smooth interplay with each other and with the supporting cast to make this a good comedy that gets a lot of laughs from their standard repertoire of slapstick and gag ideas. The setting in a clothing store is used well, with many of the props featuring in the slapstick routines.

The story has the trio stumbling across a wanted criminal, even as they are in the midst of their own business problems. As usual, the Stooges are oblivious to most of what is going on, and yet that merely serves to make it impossible for their adversaries to outwit them. The effect is always funny, and especially so when combined with a little good slapstick.

It's easily among the better of the features that have Shemp replacing Curly. The pace is good, and the story is amusingly improbable. The material is familiar, but funny nonetheless.
