The Last Stooge of Scotland

Aye, 'tis another bloody remake.  But Columbia and the Stooges always try to add some fresh footage to the old gal, so to speak.  They're still detectives on the case, but this time they graduate from a detective school rather than just being atypical detective groupies.  And even though they graduated last in their class, the detective school is still dedicated to finding them jobs, no matter where.  Imagine that level of dedication today by any organization!  People expect computers to do everything, I guess.  The physical people themselves be damned.
Personally, I was a bit disappointed that they cut McIntyre's "Hello!" from The Hot Scots out of Scotched in Scotland, but I guess that's what the original is for.  Somehow the original is richer by far, but all the high points are included: Larry in bed screams and covers himself with sheets, the big ending where the four dudes crash through the window, what have you.
