Left on the doorstep of an orphanage run 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 Larry, Curly and Moe, 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 TV reality show. Written by
The directors--or, rather, two actors playing the directors--reveal at the end of the film how the physical comedy was done. Similarly, in real life The Three Stooges went on television several times, after incidents of children hurting each other while imitating the Stooges' eye-poke, head slaps, etc., to reveal how to eye-poke without hurting anyone.

Teddy says he would not be able to open the door to the car they're all in because there's too much pressure from the water on the outside. While that may be true when there'e no water in the car, one the water pressure evens out, the door has a better chance of being opened. Also, no one suggested trying to roll the window down, which might still be possible. See more »
Great! Great! How could this possibly get any worse?
[Curly passes gas, everybody groans in disgust]
I'm sorry. I guess the pesto-bismol didn't work with the lobster.
Did you eat the shells again?
I don't know! It was on the plate, and then it wasn't.

Right before the end credits, 2 actors posing as the Farrelly Brothers appear on screen to deliver a "Don't Try This At Home" announcement. Also, towards the end of the closing credits, there is a music video featuring The Three Stooges and 'Jennifer Hudson'. See more »
I know the Farley Brothers are fans of those guys and said that the Stooges were their comic influence. I understand that. I saw DUMB AND DUMBER and THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. They have a Stooge-like feel to it. When I heard an announcement about the new movie, I thought to myself, "What time is it?" "Not going to work o'clock." When I heard about the plot, saying it will take place in modern times. I was turned off, despite the preview. I showed the preview to my friends, and they agree with me on how stupid the ideas was. It is surly not going to work at all. If the story took place in the 1930's, post World War II (late forties), or 1950's, then it would work very well! I saw it at the day THE AVENGERS came out (at that time, my right arm was beginning to look like those of Popeye's because I was animating a lot). I saw it and it was very funny. It has a feel of a Stooges short. I am not going to give it way, you have to see it in order to understand it (even though if you are a Stooges fan). Now the things that bothered me were the fact that it took place in modern times, a lion's testicles are shown, a rat comes down some lady's cleavage and modern day pop-culture references, like the scene where he called the butler C3-PO. I chuckled, but with Moe being on THE JERSEY SHORE, made me laugh. Because anything that is anti-Jersey Shore makes my day (i.e. I am not a fan of the show). With those two scenes, it would look like it is going to end up with a PG-13 rating. I did some math, after watching the film. It takes place in 2012 (i.e. the present) go 25 years back, they are ten year-old kids, so it is 1987. Go back 10 years it is 1977, they arrived to the orphanage as babies. Something wrong in this film? I know, but somehow I like, because it is very funny. I heard from online reviews, and when I saw what the hub-bub was all about, I enjoyed it. It is a guilty pleasure. So give it a watch I recommend it. 8 out of 10. Good job Farley Brothers.
Rated PG for some language, traditional slapstick violence, crude humor and some scenes that might give it a PG-13 rating (i.e. sexual references).
