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 from Rotten Tomatoes

"'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."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"The leads acquit themselves in the physical comedy, resurrecting shtick honed on a thousand-and-one vaudeville stages, and recreated in as many playgrounds."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"When the movie works, it can derive some raucous laughter..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Stooges will resonate strongly or not at all, depending on the viewer. But a Jersey Shore experience is about where the film falls short of honorable intentions."
‑ Kofi Outlaw, ScreenRant
"Resembles a scenario knocked up one afternoon for the Marx brothers and rejected the following day."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The movie is so infantile that it achieves a special kind of purity and gentleness."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"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."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"It's innocent and silly and brainless and funny. This is not a dumb comedy done smartly; this is a dumb comedy done dumbly."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The Farrelly brothers return to the vacuously silly style of Dumb and Dumber for this gently idiotic comedy"
‑ Rich Cline,
"The architects behind There's Something About Mary and Kingpin make merry with the poking and thumping, but are ultimately far too fond of their comic heroes to make them or us truly squirm."
‑ Tara Brady, Irish Times
"The metafriction between these classic dupes and today's idiots chafes uneasily."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"If this is a tribute, it's a crass and clumsy one."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Short, silly and charmingly harmless, it's likely only the Stooges aficionados will find a whole lot to love."
‑ Tom Glasson, Concrete Playground
"It's absurd, it's mindless, it's infantine but it's also bizarrely charming."
‑ Erick Weber, NECN
"About as funny as a poke in the eye."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
