Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

This collection includes some of the most beloved Stooges shorts as well as some forgettable ones -- and even a few that are simply not funny. More than half-a-century old, there is some blatant stereotyping and offensive language. The set leads off with one of the most "violent" of all of the shorts, "They Stooge to Conga," in which Moe gets spiked in the head, ear and eye while trying to help Curly.

Generations of devoted fans have kept the Three Stooges in the public eye, even made them a cultural phenomenon. For those who love silliness to the extreme and abounding farcical violence, this is a classic set.
