Plot hole: When Larry and Curley reunite with Moe on the Jersey Shore set, the producer who got Moe on the show is surprised to see there are three of them, conveniently forgetting he was watching all three together on stage before Larry and Curley walked off and he gave Moe the part.

More quotes from 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.
