This short was more interesting than funny. As others have said, there is absolutely no chemistry between Shemp and El Brendel, and a good part of the short is them barking at each other.
Many of the gags really don't make sense in the context of this short. At least in the Stooge version, there seemed to be logic (??) behind the mayhem: Curly getting trapped in a maze of pipes, the water and electrical lines getting crossed, etc. Here, the whole house is destroyed, but no one seems to notice that anything is wrong. And what was the point of having the judge (who earlier fined them for vagrancy) come to the plumber's office, where Shemp and El had been hired as plumber? Not only didn't Shemp or El recognize him (Shemp with those coke bottle glasses at least had a reason), but they beat him up and toss him out the door, where he is never heard from again. I guess it would have been too much of a rip off of "A Plumbing We Will Go" to have him also own the house they destroyed.
I haven't watched this one in a while & that is by no accident. A poor effort for Shemp as he and the comically challenged El Brendel have zero chemistry as a team. Shemp would go on to do much better work for Columbia such as A Hit With A Miss and Mr. Noisy. Worth at least one viewing for completist purposes.
