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.

The scene where the couple who would eventually become Teddy's parents are driving down the road with Moe is supposed to be 25 years prior to present day (2012), yet following behind them is clearly a red Jeep Liberty, which didn't go into production until 2001. See more »
Hey. Who's this lady?
That's Teddo's wife, Lydia.
Yep. Oh, she's one lucky girl.
Then who's the guy on the end?
Oh, that's Teddo's best friend, Mac.
Well, then who's Mr. Fancy-Pants in the top hot and scarf?
That's a snowman.
Yeah, but what's his name?

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 »
Fortunately I didn't take my girlfriend to see this mess because I got up and left an hour into it and had she gone with me it would've been twice as much a waste of money. The movie is just a lame reenactment of some of the original Stooges' shtick but adding in a bunch of insults towards Catholicism and "updating" the routines with more scatological references than could've been done by the original Stooges. And Jennifer Hudson, an Oscar winner, consented to be in this mess?
Most of the anti-Catholic bashing is done by Larry David who is Sister Mary-Mengele (ha ha! Let's name a nun after a Nazi war criminal!). The Farrelly Brothers have had a lot of success with past movies like "Shallow Hal" and "Me, Myself & Irene" but they might've run themselves out of the business with this dreck.
