Movie Reviews

The Stooges themselves are the only redeeming factor.

"Well I am a stooges fan so of course I loved the DVD because its the three stooges. Yet I was disappointed with this particular edition for two reasons. One, it only had five shorts. All the others had six, one even had seven. Secondly, probably the funniest scene in the funniest short "Three Little Bears" on this DVD has been cut out. Why the heck did they do that!? Its right after curly says, "I still didn't". What was cut out is (and this isnt a spoiler since its deleted) moe then hits him on the head and curly does his woob woob woob thing and all these golf balls fall out of his coat. Moe then says, "pick out your ball stranger" and the guy picks one up even though you shouldnt be able to tell the difference and says "I think this is it." I memorized the scene after seeing it 5,000 times growing up; goes to show how much of a stooge fan i am. It seems this newest Three Stooges DVD was lazily put together. I will still buy future Stooges DVDs, but I hope they have more then five shorts, and don't delete the funniest scene from the funniest short. Oh and one other thing: the picture on the cover is not from any of the shorts on the DVD."
Three Smart Saps w/only 5 films?

"Extremely happy to see Columbia support the Three Stooges on DVD, with another volume of their ongoing series. Three of the five shorts on this entry are among the teams' best, "Three Little Beers" (1935), "Three Arabian Nuts" (1951) and the underrated "Three Smart Saps" (1942). However, I'm only awarding 2 stars due to:
- Only 5 shorts on this disc? Past volumes have included 6 (one with 7), and considering the information capacity of DVD, even more Stooge classics could easily fit. I'm hoping this was a one-time-only shortchanging, and future volumes will provide more for the money.
- Where's the quality control!!! The print of "Three Little Beers" has 20 missing seconds due to a sloppy splice! One of the funniest scenes in the short (Curly dropping a plethora of golf balls from his pockets) is GONE!I want to continue supporting Columbia's Stooge DVDs, but you will have to do better than this one guys."
Stooge-like editing

"i cant get passed the missing golf ball scene, this is like blasphemy. if you're going to release it on dvd, then do it correctly. i was really surprised the first time i viewed the dvd that the golf ball scene was cut, and yes it is a big deal! i have all this stuff on vhs already and i am buying the dvd for the complete short with the better sound quality and picture clarity. if stooge-like editing is going to be the case why should i spend my money on stuff i already have? basically columbia is saying they dont really give a woo woo woo about the quality of the stooge releases just so long as the saw bucks keep rollin' in (see, saw?)"

"Only five shorts and the deleted golf ball scene. Sony is taking our money."
