Funniest of the westerns!
11 September 2001 | by crusefamilySee all my reviews

OUT WEST is the funniest of 17 Three Stooges westerns. The reason I like it is because it's more cleverly plotted that other westerns like: PUNCHY COWPUNCHERS, THE THREE TROUBLEDOERS, & WHOOPS, I'M AN INDIAN! The plot is that the stooges have to go out west until Shemp's bad leg heals. This is Christine McIntrye's first appearence with Shemp.So, Stooge fans, watch OUT WEST and have a good laugh.

3 1/2 out of 4 stars!

Trivia- Remade as PALS AND GALS in 1954.
