Storyline

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 Press kit

Trivia

In this film, Craig Bierko has a large mustache and works with a woman named Lydia. This is a direct reference to Groucho Marx of The Marx Brothers, a comedy trio that made films around the same time as the real three stooges. Marx wore a greasepaint mustache in most of his films and performed the song "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" in the film At the Circus (1939). See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Teddy: So, you boys on Facebook? I'll poke you. Better yet, I'll tweet you.
Curly: Oh! Tweet us to dinner? Soitenly!

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.
