Synopsis: Left on a nun's doorstep, Larry, Curly and Moe grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuking and woo-woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled in an oddball murder plot...while also stumbling into starring in a phenomenally successful TV reality show. -- (C) 20th Century Fox

Critic Reviews

  • Tom Huddleston, Time Out
    'The Three Stooges' is exactly the film it wants to be. Was it worth ten years of anyone's life? Probably not. Is it worth 88 minutes of yours? Absolutely.
  • David Denby, New Yorker
    The movie is so infantile that it achieves a special kind of purity and gentleness.
  • Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
    The metafriction between these classic dupes and today's idiots chafes uneasily.
  • Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
    The leads acquit themselves in the physical comedy, resurrecting shtick honed on a thousand-and-one vaudeville stages, and recreated in as many playgrounds.
  • Eric D. Snider, Film.com
    Any reasonable objections to the Farrellys' Three Stooges will not be on the grounds that it desecrates a revered comedy franchise, but on the grounds that it's not very funny.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    If this is a tribute, it's a crass and clumsy one.
  • Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    For the Farrellys, The Three Stooges is a labor of love. For non-believers, it's merely a labor.
  • Sean O'Connell, Washington Post
    Even by Stooges standards, it's overly juvenile and totally dumb.
  • Lou Lumenick, New York Post
    You would think that after a quarter-century in development at four different studios, somebody would have figured out how to make a funny movie about the Three Stooges.
  • Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
    The Three Stooges weighs in at about 15 howlers over 90 minutes. Not bad, about the same ratio of hilarity to hokey as the Stooges' old shorts.
