Storyline

Left on the doorstep of an orphanage managed by nuns, newborns Moe, Larry and Curly grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Now their childhood home may have to close due to financial difficulties. But Moe, Larry and Curly employed as the foster home's inept maintenance men, are determined to come to the rescue. Only the Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot - while stumbling into starring roles in a phenomenally successful reality television show. Written by Press kit

Way better than I thought!
30 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was so mad when I heard they were making this movie. I really thought the real Stooges would be rolling over in their graves, but I was pleasantly surprised how good this was.It really does a great job getting the look and feel of the originals without being a caricature of the Stooges. Really impressed with the actors.They all did a wonderful job of paying homage to the originals and giving the movie surprising heart. Larry David always cracks me up. Some of the gags made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt. As usual I have to mention my husband really likes this, too.Highly recommend for any Stooges fan and great for the kiddies.
