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 »
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 »
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 »
A faithful homage to a loved comedy group! Hilarious!
To go into this movie expecting the original stooges is ridiculous. The Stooges are long gone. Go into this movie expecting a loving tribute to the comedic powerhouse that was "The Three Stooges" and you will come out totally satisfied. All three actors are faithful and accurate in their imitation of the beloved characters. (I emphasize "IMITATION" because no-one can ever truly replace or replicate the originals.) The actors do a great job bringing the antics of the stooges into the modern day and civilization, while still sticking to the classic roots that made the stooges, "The Stooges". The director and everyone involved in the production of this film are obviously huge fans for working so hard to maintain the integrity of the franchise while modernizing it as well. All in all, a fantastic homage to a classic comedy routine.
