I thoroughly certain parts of this short. The biggest highlights: Larry slapping Shemp, Larry with the cigarettes, Tom Kennedy, Phil van Zandt, the gorilla, Norma Randall, Moe and the sickle, Shemp and the "Beeeeeeee Bopper!"
The lowlights: the 3-D shots that just waste time when viewed in 2-D, the stupidity of the pie routine
Yes, I liked the gorilla! Paul Pain liked a gorilla! Of course I liked Phil van Zandt who, like Kenneth MacDonald and Vernon Dent, always gives an A+ performance even in a sucky or mid-tier short. And what man wouldn't want "Divorce Evidence Manufactured to Your Order," back in the days where such things were needed.
One gets a fuller Stooge experience if he watches Larry's faces while Moe pummels Shemp instead of just watching Moe pummel Shemp.
The short is lacking in many areas, particularly depth and unique gags, but this is because of the focus on the 3-D. We'll get a much better treat in next week's short.
As for this week, I'd like to, for once, actually have something that generates debate rather than what we've had for the last 6 months: people state their opinions Friday-Sunday and the site goes dead afterward.
