The Three Stooges have a show to do, but since the rehearsals require cooking, they manage to get themselves thrown out of every hotel they can find. They finally find room and board at the home of the goofy inventor, Professor Danforth, but that home has it's own problems. Namely, the Professor is working on a new all-terrain, flying, space worthy submersible. With some persuading, the Stooges agree to help him finish his invention and demonstrate it to the military. However, the Martians are interested in the vechile as well and when they learn of its perfection, they plan to steal it and destroy the Earth. Like it or not, the fate of the world rests on the courage of Moe, Larry and Curly-Joe. Written by

The Three Stooges in Orbit is extremely boring, very unfunny and very loosely wrapped. The Stooges become assistants to a professor who wants to sell a submarine/tank/helicopter to the military. Somehow, Martians become hip to the invention and want it for themselves. The plot is dead and empty and the physical comedy is kept to a minimum. The humor is often lame and unfunny with only a couple of laughable moments. Joe DeRita makes a very poor Curly substitute and Moe and Larry aren't given anything interesting to do. The movie takes a huge tangent while the Stooges get lost in the professor's invention, the Martian's makeup is horrible and the Stooges definitely show their age. You know a movie is bad when there are dancing Martians in it.
