LOVE AT FIRST BITE

Moe, Larry, and Shemp reminisce about the sweethearts that they met during the war, who are coming to the States to marry them. The Stooges decide to have a toast, but their drink is too strong, and they get drunk. After a seltzer fight, Shemp winds up with his feet in cement. Moe and Larry blast him out, but also blast themselves out to the dock where their sweethearts are waiting.



The flashback sequences with Moe and Larry were reused as stock footage in FIFI BLOWS HER TOP (1958).

    After Shemp bounces back up from the floor and punches Moe and Larry the first time due to the cement bowl, you can see one of the party decorations in the background suddenly jump.

  • Slippery Floor or Not?
    We see Katrina slip on the wet floor during her and Moe's dance together, but why didn't she slip on the same wet floor earlier when she was helping Moe up?

  • Sped Up Moe
    During the cement scene, Moe's voice is sped up for about two lines, than goes back to normal.

The first half is boring and the flashbacks aren't that funny and just seem like filler for the first half. This does pick up a little in the 2nd half when the Stooges get drunk. The highlight was when Shemp had his feet caught in the tub of cement, and everytime Moe would punch Shemp backwards, Shemp would bounce back forward and accidentally hit Moe and Larry.

Great short, the ending was the best part when Shemp and his girl fall into the ocean. The flashbacks were a bit long, but the seltzer fight was great. I think the length of the flashbacks kept this short from being a 4-poker.

Grade: A- (3 1/2 pokes)

An Excellent short.I saw it in Oct 1996 on Famliy channel,it will provide you with 100 laughs a minute.Family Channel edited out scenes if the short was longer than 15 minutes and they didn't do this one on "Stooge TV" C3 tell Fox Family to give AMC all the damn stooges short before you get killed understand me?

Great short. I agree, the stories about their fiances were lame, but from that point on, it was hilarious!A+ B. Bopper - President of The Amalgamed Association of Morons, local 6 & 7/8

I disagree with your review, I really liked this one and thought it was pretty funny. the only downside of this short are the stooges' stories. If it weren't for that, this short would be darn near perfect. The part when the stooges get drunk is great. In the end it makes you kind of wonder, doesn't Shemp die from the weight of the cement when falling into the ocean? 3 1/2 pokesEdited by - Mike Holme on 10/1/2001 1:35:09 AM
