Movie Monday: The Three StoogesPosted by Sarah W on July 22, 2012
Larry, Curly, and Moe, America’s favorite boneheads, are back. Recapture those family memories of gathering around and cracking up over the antics of The Three Stooges.
I grew up with the Three Stooges, so I wasn’t sure what to expect in the movie. The story begins with the boys landing on the doorstep of an orphanage. They grow up and find themselves trying to raise $830,000 save the orphanage from closing.
As with all the Three Stooges, there’s a full storyline, complete with drama, conflict, tragedy and intrigue. Mixed up with loads of slaps, bumps, falls and Jershey Shore.
Yep – I’ll leave that one to your imagination.
It’s an entertainment tradition that is ready to continue on with the next generation, and this time the goofy trio is being reinvented by the Farrelly Bros (There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber) in a modern adaptation of the beloved comedy act.
Missed it at the theatre? The Three Stooges: The Movie is now available on DVD. Plus, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent some extra goodies that will help your family have even more fun with the boys.

See if you can find all the wacky words in the Three Stooges Wordsearch.
Start honing that comedic genius with the Stooges’ Beginners Guide to Being Punny.
Check out the videos and other interactive games on The Three Stooges: The Movie website (though be warned, when you get into gaming with the Stooges, it’s not exactly the most sophisticated venture. For example, one of the games is titled Urine Trouble. It’s not for everyone. But if you like slapstick, you’ll love it.
Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”), Chris Diamantopoulos (“24″), and Will Sasso (“MADTV”) star as the legendary knuckleheads in three episodes that compose one big misadventure.
Rated PG. Not particularly appropriate for young ones. There’s slapstick violence and some rude humor (read: fart jokes and name calling). Be sure to wait until the very end when the directors share a “play safe” message, making sure kids know poking people in the eyes isn’t a good idea. Ever.
