Movie Info

Larry, Moe and Curly Joe work in a pharmacy where a young professor works on a time machine. When the machine is sabotaged by foil Ralph Dimsal (George N. Neise), the Three Stooges, the professor and beautiful Diane (Vicki Trickett) are transported back in time to ancient Greece. The group lands in the middle of a fierce battle between rival armies. Meeting up with the might Hercules, they soon discover their appearance in the battle helped turn the tide in favor of the wrong side. A series of mishaps and a stint as galley slaves plague their efforts to correct historical accuracy. They battle mythological monsters and the evil General Odius (Neise) to set the historical record straight.

Makes 'Have Rocket Will Travel' seem smart.

Audience Reviews for The Three Stooges Meet Hercules

Certainly one of the best of the Three Stooges feature films, and it is Curly Joe's best appearance. Good story, fine production. Although it's not as funny as their earlier short films, it has some very funny sequences. Very good supporting cast includes Hal Smith and Emil Sitka standing out.

**1/2 (out of four) I must say that while not ahuge fan, I find the Stooges somewaht amusing. They're no Marx Brothers, but they're OK. And that about all I can say about this later movie for them. A time machine sends them back in time (and into mythology) where they meet up with an arrogant Hercules.
