"Typical Three Stooges two-reel romp."

Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz

Typical Three Stooges two-reel romp. It was the second short they made with MGM. Jack Cummings ("Hello Pop"/"Plane Nuts") directs. Not one of the best from The Stooges, but their slapstick routines are all there.

After Ted Healy harasses women at the theater where he works with the Three Stooges (Moe, Larry and Curly) in a vaudeville act, they all get fired by the theater manager (Edward Brophy) and quickly land new jobs as waiters in a high-class
German-style beer hall with a floor show. When chaos follows, the men are fired by the restaurant manager (Ted Malatesta).
