  • The Stooges are expecting Shemp's rich uncle for a visit, but some misunderstandings with their strongman neighbor and their angry landlady may jepordize this.

    8.0
    A forgettable entry. Very little of the material used in this film is original, although much of it is funny. The decorating scenes at the beginning are all rehashed time worn gags, but you can't help but laugh. The radio scenes are a highlight. Kitty McHugh as Mrs. Macgruder the landlady really gets involved in the action, and gets some great wordplay in with the Stooges. The second reel is even more tired schtick, particularly the use of hiding a woman in a trunk, taken exactly from Laurel and Hardy's 1929 short "Unaccustomed as We Are". The end chase is extremely painful. The short does pick up steam however, with Emil Sitka's performance. He really takes a lot of physical punishment, some of it very cringe-worthy. Pretty good, but nothing really incredible.moreless
