THE THREE STOOGES GO AROUND THE WORLD IN A DAZE

Both a spoof and faithful sequel adaptation of Jules Verne's novel Around the World in 80 Days, Phileas Fogg III, the great-grandson of Verne's hero, finds himself taking on the same wager as his anecestor. Conman Vickers Cavendish assumes the identity of 'Mr. Stuart,' the original adversary's great-grandson, and along with members of the Reformers Club, bets Phileas III's fortune that he cannot travel the globe in 80 days without the use of his substantial means. But Cavendish is actually using the wager to stage a bank robbery, and frame Fogg for the theft.

Fogg and his three servants Moe, Larry and Curly Joe begin their trip around the world stowing away on a freighter bound for Turkey, where our heroes are captured and detained. But Cavendish and his partner Lory Filch have plans to follow the world travellers and kill them, so their frameup cannot be uncovered. Escaping, Fogg and the Stooges head for India and come to the rescue of a stranded American beauty, Amelia Carter of Council Bluffs IA, with whom Fogg is immediately smitten. Arriving at the palace of the Maharajah of Karengore, they assume the identity of Indian noblemen. Discovering they are wanted men, the boys flee once more, crossing the Chinese border into the hands of the military and accused of being spies. Turning the tables on their Chinese torturers, they're set adrift at sea until they land in Tokyo, and enter the world of Sumo wrestling. With Curly Joe posing as a champion wrestler, the Stooges receive passage to San Francisco for the world sumo wrestling championship bout. But stranded to hitchhike the length of the United States, Fogg, Amelia and the Stooges stowaway in a moving van. Finally, Scotland Yard finally catches up to our heroes... but Cavendish and Filch are laying in wait at London's airport to eliminate our heroes. Can the villains be defeated, and Fogg make it to the Reformers in time to win his wager?



The story incorporates several popular Stooges bits from prior films, including "the Maharajah" routine, and reworking the plot of PUNCH DRUNKS (1934), with Curly Joe turning into a fighting whirlwind everytime he hears the tune Pop Goes the Weasel.

  • Sudden disappearance
    When Larry turns the tea kettle over, causing the tea to spill out on Moe's foot, Larry grabs a chair over to him. Then the camera shows a close-up of the tea kettle and we can see that Larry suddenly isn't holding the chair over to him anymore.

This film is sort of the reverse of the Hercules movie in that it starts slow then gets better towards the end. After a good start w/ the stooges preparing and serving breakfast to Mr. Fogg, the film gets bogged down with a lot of plot & not much stooging--the little bit there is ain't all that funny. The movie starts to come to life when the boys hit the maharajah's palace. The best part of Daze is Curly Joe's sumo wrestling rematch w/ Itchy Kitchy.

Still, if the stooges wanted to sell the act more on verbal humor during this time period, they would've had much better results if Shemp was still alive. Overall, a pretty good film & I would say my favorite of the Joe Derita era.

7 pokes

If there was ever a film that cried out for the superb talents of Curly, Shemp, Vernon Dent, or Christine McIntyre, this was it.

I don't fault Moe, Larry & Curly Joe for trying. After all, they still had to put food on the table, but this film signaled just how close they were to (or how far past) retirement. It was pathetically weak.

Emil Sitka must've also felt terribly slighted to end up as another butler, & then only for a few seconds. I thought he could've carried the role played by Jay Sheffield much better, & certainly had the street cred in Stoogedom to do it.

I also don't have anywhere near the same respect or affection for Joe DeRita I did for Curly & Shemp. DeRita fell well short of the comedy bar set by Curly & Shemp, & was simply outclassed in this Maharajah routine, by an ailing Curly in 'Three Little Pirates', as well as a similar, earlier Curly performance in 'Time Out for Rhythm'.

Few people can do in their 60s what they did in their 30s, but at best, this was pap. Calling it anything else cheapens, significantly, the great Stooge legacy of the 30 years before this film.

This must be a truly Stooge masterpiece ever made.The plot is so interestingly,no much slapstick but unique.I thought the "Go Around World" idea is match with DeRita era,not only is not need the slapstick too much,but also is never used in another short and feature before DeRita era.I always compromise reason why the Stooges in this film not doing more slapstick,because you can see in this film Moe are 66,Larry are 61,and DeRita are 54,how can Moe punish in 66 years old to Larry who 61 years old and Curly-Joe in 54 years old!.So, I really disagree about people thinking the "TTS Go Around World in Daze" is a weak film..............

Best DeRita feature I've seen so far (not saying much, given that I've only seen SNOW WHITE and KOOK'S TOUR previously). Not uproariously funny, but enjoyable, and far less confusing to actually watch than to try to sum up! DeRita comes off as fairly likeable, and does more here than I've yet seen him do. But he's still far less interesting than any of his predecessors; unlike even Besser, he has no distinguishing catchphrases or mannerisms, and doesn't add anything to funny lines by how he delivers them.

At the time the Stooges made this film they were well past their comedic prime, and it shows. The "plot" (if you can call it that) wishes it was good enough to be called stupid. All of the acting in this film is beyond horrible. For 30+ minutes I sat in front of the set unintentionally doing my best Buster Keaton impression, before being unable to sit through anymore of this celluloid turd. For the new/casual Stooge fan who may be reading this, if you see anything involving the Three Stooges with the names Norman Maurer or Joe Derita attached, run far away.

Everything, especially the redoing of bits from Punch Drunks and Three Little Pirates, falls extremely flat. For the Stooge fan who has the guts to not feel as though they have to like everthing that was done in their name, avoid this movie at all costs if you have yet to see it. It's a shame that Joe Besser gets the most flack when it comes to "the worst Stooge". Yes his shorts sucked, but at least he did more than Derita; who obviously felt standing there and being fat was all that was necessary to fill the shoes of the two deceased Howard Brothers before him.

To sum this film up in one line, it is "sit on your hands unfunny".

I have now seen all the Columbia features (except Stop! Look! and Laugh! and The Outlaws is Coming) and this is by far the best. Great mix of slapstick and other stuff as well as an interesting plot. 4 pokes!
