  • The Stooges are mistaken are mistaken for doctors by a group of gangsters.

    "Did ya get that slug out?" "The slug bit me!" Despite having been medical professionals many times before, the Stooges fail to live up to their usual expectations in this silly, plotless film. Like "Phony Express" before it, this is sort of like a series of seperate skits tethered together into one whole film. The beginning with Curly swallowing the fish (and Moe getting it out of him) was very funny, as are the scenes where the Stooges play doctor to remove a bullet from a mobster. After this however, the whole short revolved around a prolonged chase through a mannequin factory, which gets quite old after a while. Still worthy of a view.moreless
