The stooges are the Wrong brothers, three inventors trying to finish building an airplane they can sell to the army and thereby avoid the draft. When their plane, the "Buzzard", turns out to be a flop, the boys are drafted into the army where they have trouble with a tough drill sergeant.Written by

The Wrong brothers building an airplane is a great idea, and the stooges do their classic comedy for most of this short. But when they crash their plane and the writers ran out of ideas, they had to recycle footage from Boobs in Arms to pad out the rest of the running time.
While there's nothing terribly bad about this, it's so obvious. The tone of the whole short changes. The ending--with the boys in the army--has absolutely nothing to do with what's gone before. They obviously recorded the introduction--Moe reading a draft letter--to try to make the ending somehow be related to the rest of the movie.
I only wish they had worked a little harder on an original ending--it would have made the short a true gem. But this ending is a let-down, so it's difficult to give it all the love I want to give it. I guess they just ran out of time.
