Peter and Bobby Farrelly wrote and directed this comedy that places the classic slapstick trio in contemporary times.

Not surprisingly, they wind up as stars of a reality show.
USA TODAY's Claudia Puig says three stars out of four: "There's no shortage of nyuk-nyuk's, woo-woo-woo's and eye-poking, as expected in a movie about the slapstick comedy trio."
