Storyline

The stooges run a local drug store and are about to have their lease taken away by Amos Flint, the mean old man who owns the place. When Flint kicks his wife out for being old, the stooges try to help her by inventing a formula that makes old people young. Their concoction turns the wife into a beautiful young woman, and Flint offers the boys their store for free if they'll transform him as well. They agree, but he turns into a five-year-old after he swallows the serum, and the boys leave on the run. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

Trivia

According to EmilSitka.com, in the scene where The Three Stooges and Christine McIntyre are eating a cake that Shemp Howard accidentally decorated with bubble gum, the "bubbles" that are blown aren't actually bubble-gum bubbles--they were condoms. See more »

Goofs

When Larry says the line, "Put that pestle down, man!" Moe is clearly seen mouthing the same line. See more »

Quotes

Shemp: Why'd ya hit me with the pestle?
Moe: You're lucky I didn't hit you with the mortar.
Larry: [laughs jokingly] The mortar the merrier!

Good Three Stooges short!
9 March 2005 | by Movie NuttballSee all my reviews

The Three Stooges has always been some of the many actors that I have loved. I love just about every one of the shorts that they have made. I love all six of the Stooges (Curly, Shemp, Moe, Larry, Joe, and Curly Joe)! All of the shorts are hilarious and also star many other great actors and actresses which a lot of them was in many of the shorts! In My opinion The Three Stooges is some of the greatest actors ever and is the all time funniest comedy team!

One of the most different Three Stooges shorts is All Gummed Up. In this short are Christine McIntyre, Emil Sitka, Symona Boniface, Florence Lake, Cy Schindell, Al Thompson, and Victor Travers. The acting by these actors are good especially by McIntyre and Sitka. There are many funny scenes here that I think most Three Stooges fans will love! In My opinion this one of the most different Three Stooges shorts. There is another similar Three Stooges called Bubble Trouble. I recommend both of these shorts!
