The Three Stooges

The Farrelly Brothers bring back a beloved classic comedy act, with an updated family-friendly take on the original bonehead trio. Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos and Will Sasso star as Larry , Moe and Curly, who are left as newborns on a nun's doorstep and grow up finger-poking, nyuk-nyuk-nyuking and woo-wooing their way to uncharted levels of knuckleheaded misadventure. Now, out to save their childhood home, only The Three Stooges could become embroiled with an oddball murder plot while stumbling into starring roles in a phenomenally successful reality television show.
