The Three Stooges, a 2012 vaudeville comedy, originates from the extreme slapstick comedy that has last over a decade. Releasing their first short film nearly a decade ago in 1925, the Three Stooges (better known as Moe, Larry, and Curly) have embodied that dumbest of dumb ever since.
The infamous three stooges, Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos), Larry (Sean Hayes), and Curly (Will Sasso) have created an art out of being knuckleheads, even as small children in the orphanage they all grew up in. Employed as maintenance men for the orphanage, when they hear it could be shutting down due to financial problems, the trio of idiots must take action.
Trying to rake up enough money to save the orphanage, the three wind up in a twisted murder plot. To boot, they also end up in a critically successful reality show – all without realizing any of it! Using their brains (or lack thereof) the brothers must come together and save the day, whether it means wreaking havoc or not.
Directed by the Farrelly brothers (Peter and Bobby), The Three Stooges has been work in progress for almost a decade, as casting problems have forced production setbacks along the way. Filming last May finally took off, allowing the film to be slated for an April 13th release date.
