The Three Stooges

Question: I don't remember if it was mentioned in the movie, but are the three stooges brothers or friends?

Chosen answer: The original Three Stooges was comprised of two brothers, Moe Howard and Curly Howard, and also Larry Fine, who was unrelated. After Curley suffered a debilitating stroke in the 1950s, his brother, Shemp Howard, took over as the third Stooge. In this movie they're just friends.

Character mistake: When the three are introduced to the adoptive couple, their names are not provided. But the husband then says they want to adopt Moe.

Trivia: Jim Carrey was originally offered the role of Curly, but turned it down because he didn't want to wear a fat suit, and felt he was too old to gain the necessary weight without risking his health.
