Peter and Bobby Farrelly are responsible for classic comedies like Kingpin, There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, and Fever Pitch. And now, after 16 years of trying, the Farrelly brothers are finally releasing a feature-length movie starring everyone’s favorite dimwitted, sociopathic, hyperviolent vagrants. The Three Stooges, which opens in theaters tomorrow, is rated PG — which is particularly unfortunate considering that it co-stars Sofia Vergara and Kate Upton.
The rating is just one reason why we don’t have high hopes for the film. Another is that you can’t really improve upon the originals. So we gathered up some of our favorite Stooges clips featuring the original Moe, Larry, and Curly. (Sorry Shemp.)

Luckily, they were at one of those old-time fancy-dress parties that served nothing but pie.

Why slap each other with hands when they can slap each other with rifles?
