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
Ted refuses to give the trio the $830,000 needed to save the orphanage because he blames the orphanage for the things that went wrong in his life; from being sent to military school to his murder plot. One, the orphanage could never predict such things would happen at the time he was adopted, and two, Teddy seemed to not have any problems coming to that exact same orphanage later with Ling to adopt Murph, Peezer, and Weezer.

[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
We didn't pray for this

The UK theatrical version was cut for a PG rating, to remove the following imitable techniques:
A vegetable peeler used on a man's head.
A cheese grater used on a man's foot.
Hair tongs used on a woman's tongue.
A man's head being shoved into a microwave.
A verbal reference to playing with matches.
The uncut version was rated 12 on video. See more »
Larry (Sean Hayes), Curly (Will Sasso), and Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos) are the Three Stooges. The Farrelly brothers takes on this high risk project with little possible rewards. If it goes wrong, the Farrellys will be ridiculed (as they do from some quarters). And how much reward would they get for making a Three Stooges movie anyways? In general, the three guys do a great mimicry job. The story starting with the orphanage which had good heart. The main problem is the oddball murder plot. It's way too serious to do slap sticks on. All in all, these are likable characters and they have good fun. The Farrelly brothers comedic credentials survives another day.
