  • Shemp's poor health prompts the Stooges to buy a broken down car and go on a camping trip.

    The Stooges' great vacation! The plotline and many of the gags have been done over and over again by other comics, notably Laurel and Hardy in "The Perfect Day" and W.C. Fields in "It's a Gift", but the Stooges can hold their own. Matt McHugh as sneaky "buddy" Claude Quacker is a highlight, as McHugh was very skilled at comedy. The Stooges wives though, are not well defined and really have little to do. There is also a great mix of physical and verbal comedy, something that would become progressivly more common as the Shemp years went on. Still a great film.
