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
Jim Carrey was originally cast as Curly, but didn't want to wear a fat suit, and decided he was too old to gain the necessary weight without risking his health. See more »
When the Stooges are repairing the bell, and especially when they the are talking with Monsignor Ratliffe, their blue overalls change colors/shades of blue - Moe's is most obvious. See more »
Oh, boy. Fosters. That's Australian for beer.
Would you like that in a bottle or a mug?
I'll take it in a mug.
You got it.

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 »
This movie was a lot of fun. It remains very true to the Stooges form. So, if you are looking for some mindless laughs and a fun evening at the movies, you will enjoy this one from start to finish. Some of the reviewers here seem to have been looking for something more than this film ever promised.
If you are looking for an art house film, or an important and significant film, this one isn't it. If you are looking for a film to be as fresh as the stooges were in their time, this one stays too true to form to fit that bill. Slapstick, not sophistication is the hallmark of this film.
But if you understand the Stooges, and are just looking for some laughs, you can't go wrong here.
