Storyline

Joe accidentally takes a picture of a paper plate, which Moe and Larry submit to a magazine as an authentic picture of a flying saucer. Moe and Larry collect a big prize, but when the picture is proven to be a fraud, they're hauled off to jail. Joe leaves the boys for a camping trip, only to meet two genuine and beautiful aliens from the planet Zircon, who allow him to photograph them. Joe then gets a picture of a real spaceship, and this time he gets the fame and fortune, while Moe and Larry wind up in a sanitarium. Written by Mitch Shapiro <mshapiro@a.crl.com>

This is a great film
16 September 2003 | by EdermikeSee all my reviews

I am writing this as a rebuttal to the ignorance I see on Joe. First of all Joe fit in really well with Moe and Larry. He was the only Stooge to hit back and Larry trying to boss him around as well as Moe meant Larry got beat up twice as bad, This is a great parody of Cinderella and Besser was a very energetic and entertaining guy. In fact Besser is my favorite comedian period. Every line and gesture is clever and Moe and Larry are great as rotten brothers. The Mom is really funny too. Besser bashers be gone you are not real Stooge fans. Never compare third stooges. Thats like comparing chocolate and vanilla. They are both good. Joe was Shemp's best friend and knew everyone since 1932. All six Stooges were nice guys and liked each other. Joe was always very complementary to the others and Larry in his last years always had a photo of Joe and all the others hanging on his nursing home room wall.
