Left on the doorstep of an orphanage run by nuns at birth, three friends Moe, Larry and Curly spend their time eye poking and slapping each other all the day long. But when their orphanage suddenly goes bankrupt, the three Stooges set out to save it by journeying into the world to find a way to raise the money required. But their quest brings them into being used in a murder scheme and landing them into a popular reality show. Written by
At first glance one might think it's a mistake that many of the nuns didn't age at all during the course of the movie. It's more likely that it's all part of the joke since the original Stooge shorts were made on the cheap and the directors would have never bothered with details like that. See more »
[an orphan says "We're not just orphans" as the orphans play a game of kick the can; Sister Mary-Mengele blows her whistle]
Everybody inside! Come on, time for your chores!
But Sister Mary-Mengele, the game's tied! Can't we just play another couple of minutes? Please?
No, you can't. Now get inside! And pick up that soccer can and put it back in the equipment shed where it belongs!
Wait a second, Sis, you gotta hear us out!
We didn't ask for this

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.
