The Three Stooges is about a trio of men Larry, Curly and Moe who still lives in an orphanage since they were babies. Hitting, slapping and finger-poking each other all the time, they’re nothing but bad news for the Sisters of Mercy Orphanage, an orphanage that would soon be shut down if they don’t come up with $830,000 within 30 days.
The trio then travels to the city to try and raise the money somehow despite the fact that they know nothing about inner city life. A series of adventure begins as The Three Stooges becomes involved in an attempted murder plot as well as a famous reality TV show during their quest to save their orphanage.
When it comes to comedy, the Farrelly brothers forget to add the laughs these days. Children may find this movie very humorous; after all it is juvenile. But older viewers won’t find any fresh jokes, or at least amusing ones, in his comedy and the result of this movie is basically nothing but pure slapsticks.
Some Catholics have even criticised the film for its disrespectful portrayal of nuns, especially Kate Upton in her "nun-kini". You know the ending went a bit too far despite Kate looking drop dead gorgeous. If you’re not religious, then you don’t need to worry about it. It’s certainly an improvement over the Farrelly brother’s previous films, Hall Pass and The Heartbreak Kid, thanks to the performances from its three leading actors.
In conclusion, The Three Stooges is characters attacking each other for 90 minutes. Though it’s not unpleasant or painful to watch, and it’s certainly an improvement over the Farrelly brother’s previous work, audiences other than children will find very little entertainment.
