* RecycledScript: Several shorts had this, usually with StockFootage incorporated in. Once Shemp replaced Curly, several remakes of Curly's old shorts were done with the new stooge, and this was repeated with Joe Besser.

* NauseaFuel: The diaper-changing scene halfway through the movie, [[spoiler:babies start [[TinkleInTheEye urinating on the Stooges, prompting them to squirt one another]] with the babies]]. Granted, [[ItMakesSenseInContext it's meant to parody the original "PieInTheFace" routine the trio used to pull off]] but it doesn't work out so well...

* [[JustHereForGodzilla Just Here To See Moe Beat Up The Cast Of]] ''[[JustHereForGodzilla Jersey Shore]]'': Don't act like you weren't.

** Larry offers to clean a young woman's pair of nice-looking glasses... by [[WhatAnIdiot licking them]].



* SoOkayItsAverage: General consensus is that the three leads do an excellent job portraying Moe, Larry and Curly, but the so-so plot and loads of already dated pop culture references bog the movie down.

* CriticalResearchFailure[=/=]TheyJustDidntCare: The Three Stooges were all Jewish, so, in TheMovie, they get dropped off at a convent. On the other hand, the baby Stooges obviously didn't get a say in where their real parents ditched them, NunsAreFunny, and the classic shorts had [[NegativeContinuity no set backstory to draw from]].

* BrokenBase: The short ''Cuckoo in a Choo-Choo'', hands down. This is the short in which Larry is playing a Marlon Brando-esque character who [[CrazyAwesome stole a passenger car off a moving train]], just so his girlfriend's sister can get her [[UpperClassTwit rich drunken boyfriend]] Shemp to propose, because then ''they'' can get married. Unfortunately Shemp is in love with [[InterspeciesRomance Carey the giant canary]] who exists only in his booze-sodden dreams, and who is played by some poor soul in an [[NightmareFuel utterly hideous]] suit. And Moe is a railroad detective in love with Larry's girlfriend's sister (the one they want to get hitched to Shemp) who finds them and tries to get rid of Shemp so he can marry the sister. There is no middle ground on this one, every Stooges fan either [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome thinks it's terrific]] or sees it as the worst thing they ever did.

** In the short "Men in Black", a deranged hospital patient (played by Billy Gilbert) claims to see "great big giant green CANARIES!" . About two decades later, "Cuckoo on a Choo-Choo" is released (see BaseBreaker above) and guess what a hallucinating Shemp is in love with?

* ReplacementScrappy- Opinions on Shemp vary, but Joe Besser is universally reviled. Even Joe called his shorts "The Two Stooges featuring Joe Besser." It didn't help that he showed up at a bad time in the series, when the budgets were lowering and the drive of their earlier works as diminishing. "Curly" Joe De Rita, who played the third stooge during their comeback, mostly avoided the trope.

** It's quite telling that "Quiz Whizz", where Besser has a scene where he is force-fed cigars until he turns pale, is one of the better-received in his run.

** In ''Dizzy Pilots'', as their plane is about to crash, Moe and Curly end up hugging each other. Larry quips "Hey, you two guys goin' steady?", for which he gets slapped by Moe.
