Storyline

Three druggists travel with a Milquetoast inventor, Schuyler, and his girlfriend, Diane, to ancient Greece on a newly invented time machine. There, the evil tyrant, Odius, takes a shine to the woman and has the guys enslaved as galley rowers using the excuse of the three druggists helping a rebel leader, Ulysses, escape. The rigors of the rowing pump Schuyler up into a muscleman with strength comparable to Hercules himself, who is in the employ of Odius. The threesome get the idea of raising money by promoting Schuyler as Hercules for a series of physical contests. Using a combination of his great strength and, a judicious use of a large supply of potent tranquilizers Curly-Joe brought with him, Schuyler is a success. However, this leads to trouble when the real McCoy learns about the imposter. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

great movie!!
31 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The stooges meet hercules" is a great movie. Its great for all ages. Young and old. I wish the stooges made more movies. Its a real funny movie, the stooges go back in time and meet Hercules, who eles... alls going well till the stooges along with their friend end up in jail, on a slave ship. What seems like years, goes by and the stooges' friend gains more power than 50 men put together. (What a great work out!) In the end they go back to fright Hercules and win the girl. I know what I just said seems like a bad movie, but it really is a great movie. And real funny too.
